The Day of Creation.

Ballard, J G.

Picture of The Day of Creation.
Dr. Mallory, working in the parched terrain of central Africa, dreams of a new Nile that will make the desert bloom. As his medical clinic fails, he observes a trickle of water on the local airstrip, and soon a river, which the obsessed Mallory claims as his own creation. Other surreal characters join him and Mallory sets out to find the river’s source.
