Today I finished reading JG Ballard's ridiculously fantastical Hello America. It's playful and witty and sharp, less of a waking nightmare than Crash, a page-turner of a future-shocking yarn. But in addition its melodrama and landscapes, its outrageous costumery and gadgetry, its epic trekking and vistas and its set-piece action sequences positively scream out for cinematic interpretation.
