Newsnight Review on Miracles of Life

Tony Parsons, Julie Myerson and John Harris join Kirsty Wark to discuss JG Ballard's memoir, Miracles of Life.

In the book, written after Ballard was diagnosed with advanced stage cancer, the author traced his development as a chronicler of the fantastical to his childhood in Shanghai, where he first lived in an ex-pat community and then in a Japanese internment camp during the war.

First broadcast on 1, February, 2008.
