Once again Ballard explores the realm of inner spaces. Here the setting is entirely within a massive residential development block, somewhere not too far from London. Fifty floors of vertical city evolve to have their own social rhythms and patterns, regressing to tribal modes of behavior while all around them, life continues uninterrupted. Similar to Concrete Island, "normal" life is within sight but has become abhorrent to the building residents.
