Student’s Name: Teacher’s Name: Course Name: Date: Super-Cannes by J.G. Ballard Super-Cannes Super-Cannes is a fiction novel written by J. G. Ballard, a British author, and was published or made available in the year 2000.

It is for this reason that it has been time and again referred to as a companion portion of the Cocaine Nights book. Description The act in Super-Cannes is set exclusively in a business park referred to as Eden-Olympia. The storyteller, Paul Sinclair, together with his wife, Jane Sinclair, move to Eden-Olympia after Paul quits his post as an editor and publisher of aviation journals and his wife is offered a job as a clinician in the park’s private clinic. On the face of it, Eden-Olympia appears to be the perfect place to work because of the setting and neighborhood which Jane seems to love and demonstrates this when she says: ''I love it here already…because there isn't any culture. All this alienation…I could easily get used to it'' (Ballard 9) However, after settling in Eden-Olympia, they soon come to realize that the place is not what it looks like, but a place with frightening history. For one, Dr. David Greenwood, who Jane succeeds, kills his colleagues before pulling a trigger to his head. This fact frightens Paul and Jane. After hearing the stories about Greenwood and the kind of person he was, they become curious on why such a respected, loved and silent person could decide to kill his
