9780141189772: The Ticket That Exploded: The Restored Text (Penguin Modern Classics)

The second installment in Burroughs' cut-up style Nova trilogy.

In The Ticket That Exploded, William S. Burroughs' grand ''cut-up'' trilogy that starts with The Soft Machine and continues through Nova Express reaches its climax as inspector Lee and the Nova Police engage the Nova Mob in a decisive battle for the planet. Only Burroughs could make such a nightmare vision of scientists and combat troops, of ad men and con men whose deceitful language has spread like an incurable disease be at once so frightening and so enthralling.

About the Author:

William S. Burroughs (1914-1997) was an American author, painter, and spoken-word performer of wide-ranging cultural influence. A postmodernist and a key figure of the beat generation, he focused his art on a relentless subversion of the conventions of modern American society, as reflected in his often darkly humorous and sardonic satire. He wrote numerous novels and novellas, as well as six short story collections and four collections of essays.

Review:

''The fold-in technique gives excellent comic and satiric results!cleverly combines the raw energy of lowbrow spy- and science fiction with the brutal unfamiliarity of hardcore pornography.'' --Spectator

''His Swiftian vision of a processed, pre-packaged life, a kind of electro-chemical totalitarianism, often evokes the black laughter of hilarious horror.'' --Playboy
