Publisher's Summary

Led by a charismatic and slightly unhinged woman, a group of environmentalists wrest control over a small South Pacific island in hopes of cultivating it into their own private Eden. But paradise is not quite what it seems in this “searing” (Kirkus Reviews) send-up of environmentalism, feminism, and extremism of all sorts.

©1994 J.G. Ballard (P)2013 Audible, Inc.

For Ballard completists

What did you love best about Rushing to Paradise?

Not full of Ballard's typical hypnotic description but great characters and good performance with lots of different accents.
