    Paperback× The Aerodrome PDF ñ aerodrome book, The Aerodrome MOBIRex Warner is these days known for his translation of Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War than for his fiction But it's still worth reading his 1941 work The Aerodrome one of ten he wrote because though it's flawed it contains an odd power Indeed the book has earned praise from both Anthony Burgess and JG Ballard The latter isn't surprising as Warner's writing exhibits the same urban sterility and fascination with process and mechanism that haunts Ballard's works While it's subtitled as a love story the wo
