Hi book lovers,

Intrigued by the story of 'The Highrise' and the background of J. G. Ballard we are watching The Empire Of The Sun, directed by Steven Spielberg.

The novel recounts the story of a young British boy, Jamie Graham (named after Ballard's two first names, "James Graham"), who lives with his parents in Shanghai. After the Pearl Harbor attackJapan occupy theShanghai International Settlement, and in the following chaos Jim becomes separated from his parents.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
