Så igen denne Ballard. I ett samtal med Richard Prince. Inte den enda fiktionsanklagade biografiska uppställningen, men onekligen en av de mest läsvärda. Om händelserna som de diskuterar är sanna eller ej låter jag vara osagt. Gå in och avgör själva!
"Prince: In a way my situation for the last three weeks has been classic. It's true. Something you read about in the newspapers. And if I can make any sense out of these weeks in the air, they won't seem so random and meaningless as I first thought they were. That's what I am trying to do now. Make sense.
Ballard: It's almost like you've been in an atrocity exhibition. British Airways represents itself as another perfectable, meaningful world. You find yourself enshrined in this Homeric journey, having to test yourself against vast scientific and technological systems that began to unwind the moment you were born, and here you are trying to unwind them even more."
