Patrick Malahide Narrates JG Ballard’s The Largest Theme Park in the World

For the next 27 days, on BBC Radio 4 Extra you can listen to Patrick Malahide narrate JG Ballard‘s The Largest Theme Park in the World.

It is a very peculiar short story.  “Europe has exchanged work for perpetual sun-bathing on the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.”  I would say it is a strange piece of speculative fiction…not sci-fi, but weird and kind of dystopian (though not in the strict grimy sense) nonetheless.  It is very good and at 15 minutes is a quick and enjoyable listen.

I believe this broadcast originally aired in the early 1990s.  But, I really hope Patrick Malahide starts doing more narrations.  He’s really good at them, especially the stranger stories.

“I already read Excel 97 and nothing  happened. Got any JG Ballard?”
