内容紹介

The definitive cult, post-modern novel – a shocking blend of violence, transgression and eroticism.

When Ballard, our narrator, smashes his car into another and watches a man die in front of him, his sense of sexual possibilities in the world around him becomes detached. As he begins an affair with the dead man's wife, he finds himself drawn with increasing intensity to the mangled impacts of car crashes. Then he encounters Robert Vaughan, a former TV scientist turned nightmare angel of the expressway, who has gathered around him a collection of alienated crash victims and experiments with a series of auto-erotic atrocities, each more sinister than the last. But Vaughan craves the ultimate crash – a head-on collision of blood, semen, engine coolant and iconic celebrity.

First published in 1973 Crash remains one of the most shocking novels of the second half of the twentieth century and was made into an equally controversial film by David Cronenberg.

Ballard’s autobiography Miracles of Life was published in 2008 and Extreme Metaphors, a collection of interviews with the author, is due out in 2012.

????????????

In this hallucinatory novel, an automobile provides the hellish tableau in which Vaughan, a "TV scientist" turned "nightmare angel of the highways," experiments with erotic atrocities among auto crash victims, each more sinister than the last. James Ballard, his friend and fellow obsessive, tells the story of this twisted visionary as he careens rapidly toward his own demise in an internationally orchestrated car crash with Elizabeth Taylor.

A classic work of cutting-edge fiction, Crash explores both the disturbing implications and horrific possibilities of contemporary society's increasing dependence on technology as intermediary in human relations.

人間の身体感覚がテクノロジーに取り込まれてゆくそのひとつの様態を表したのがこの作品。まあ、ここまで行かなくても、車に乗っている時が一番生きている感じがするという自動車マニアはいる。普通のカーセックスでも、戯れる裸体と自動車の無機質なフォルムが妙に融合して見えることがある。彼らが動けば、車も揺れる。本作では、自動車事故で負傷したり死亡したりする女性の傷つき、流血する肢体と、破損し、エンジンオイルに塗れた車の各部がほぼ等価に扱われている。テクノロジーと身体感覚の境界線の喪失。これに「ビデオドローム」を撮ったクローネンバーグが目をつけないわけはないのである。娯楽小説ではなく、一種の近代批判だろう。英語そのものは難しくないが、著者独特の抽象的比喩が相当出てくるのと、自動車や道路の各部を詳細に表す用語が頻出する。あと、車が破損した状態や、車が疾走し衝突する様を表す表現も多し。逆に言うと、そうした用語や表現が学べるということだ。TOEIC800以上はないと難しいだろう。

That words become changed over time, their over-use contributing to the dilution of the potency which they once held is an altogether sad truism. This combined with the inarticulate nature of 'modern' speech often means that it is very hard to praise a work (such as this) because the lexicon we once reserved for greatness and the expression thereof, no longer retains any power, certainly not the power one wishes to convey in this instance.

If one were to consider a single word to describe this immensely important work, I would choose the word 'brilliant' - not as per youf speak i.e.

I couldnt finish this one. I love Ballard; but more his abstract, contemplative (meaning affect-lacking) aspects than his obsessive surgical ones. This book is all the latter with less of the former. I don't like medical textbooks, so I couldnt read it to the end. But: I found it ultrashocking and that makes me think there must be something to all the hype. I guess it's worth the reading.

 本書は『The Atrocity Exhibition』の一エピソードの後日談的物語なので、内容的正確性を求めるには、まずそちらを読まれたほうがいいと思いますが、何はともあれ、<自動車>と<人体>と<精液>が多層的に衝突し最終的に結合するという芸術的精神病理を大真面目に描いた本書を合法的に読むことができる<現代>に生きることの意味を真剣に考えさせられるという意味だけでも本書は十二分に貴重な文学だと思います。

A beautifully obscene book, a vision of the future in the present, a new kind of sexuality as it bonds with new technology. A great idea taken to the extreme limits of its possibilities.

5つ星のうち 2.0 Shallow and Repetitive 2013/12/3
投稿者 A-Team - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I think both the 5 and 1-star reviews are both off. People either loving or hating this book. The "hate" reviews are especially shallow I think because they seem to be unable to look past the visceral language and "gross" descriptions of sex acts and injuries. Believe me I cringe more than half a dozen times reading Crash, but that in and of itself doesn't make it a bad book.

The redundancy became distracting after a while, around the halfway point. The same exact words used over and over again to describe the sex acts. It seemed to me pretty obvious that these scenes weren't meant to turn us on. We're supposed to be confused, disgusted, and alienated from these people. We aren't supposed to join in their erotic love for technology fusing with people.

It's also so presumptuous from Ballard's point of view. At no point does he ever point out how messed up his relationship with Catherine is, or how insane the car-lovers are. It's all just...normal. As we gawk and scratch our heads. They've all become so alienated from humanity that the desperate search for feeling and eroticism through extra-marital affairs, mutilation and technology is a matter-of-fact for them. They are already so far gone down the rabbit hole.

That being said, at 3/4's through the book I started wondering where exactly Ballard had this thing going. I felt like he was hammering his point home over and over again. Probably could have been half the length it was in my opinion.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Harsh, crude, repelling, but oddly sexy 2015/2/17
投稿者 Gabriel Caracciolo - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
A harsh story of sex and car crashes, which I found most of the time repelling, but ultimately morphs into a tale of self destruction. The characters are crude, severely impaired and yet all seek relief from trauma caused by some car accident in their past, through elaborate sex acts involving cars and crashes. In the end, the whole book is original and erotic, despite being also repulsive and, at times, disgusting

5つ星のうち 2.0 weirdly boring 2017/6/30
投稿者 Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I thought this book was going to be pretty weird and scandalous, but was pretty bored- nothing really happens, and the prose makes it kind of tiring to read page after page of depravity that was probably very shocking in the 70's when the book was written, but now makes for kind of an insubstantial story.
5つ星のうち 4.0 I would love to say.... 2009/7/4
投稿者 James - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I would love to say that this was a fascinating warning against our ever growing dependence on technology and how it has changed us to were we are more connected to the inanimate than the animate. I would love to say that this book was an extraordinary work of provocative literary fiction and how it made me think and challenged my views on sexuality and the world around me.... But I can't. Because this book was an amazing, hard to put down, unbelieveably graphic, in depth, fantasized look at people with car-crash-fetishes.

James Ballard a director (I think) of commercials gets into a serious car accident that kills the driver of the other vehicle involved and forever changes James and the victim's wife. Through the strange and sometimes dangerous eyes of a deranged man, Dr. Robert Vaughn, who also had long ago been in a life altering crash, they discover the sexuality of the pairing of their bodies with automobiles and the eroticism of car crashes. (I'm pretty sure others who are die-hard fans of this book will scoff at my paultry description of the book, but that's basically what this book is about.)

I enjoyed the book because it was different-- definitely an alternative in eroticism-- and gave me a glimpse of how people react differently to tragedies or the unthinkable. I can't say I walked away from the book with a more enlightened view of anything, but I can say I walked away with satisfaction.

The only complaint I have is the tone of the book: It was monotone. There were so many instances in the book were I knew I needed to feel something-- astonishment, horror, grief, lust-- but they were lost in the one page long, overly detailed, paragraphs. I have read 100 Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera so I am familiar with this type of style but I think for this book empahsis-- ie. shorter paragraphs-- were needed to punctuate the scenes. And his switches in scenes and times of day and character actions completely threw me off because they were not actually stated. It was more of an aftethought. The author's main focus was telling the story and making sure the reader understood that there was semen *everywhere* and vulvas being penetrated constantly. Sounds a bit much for a review, right? Read the book and you'll see that what I said was practically G-Rated.

All in all... good book.
