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.
