'The Ticket That Exploded', William Burroughs's fourth novel
and the last of the trilogy originally published in Paris, employs the
famous fold-in method to give a fragmented and many-sided vision of modern
reality. The result is at once an original work of science fiction, an
intensively political novel and a political and moral fable. Here,
Burroughs's preoccupation is with the plethora of forces in the world that
attempt to exercise "control", and his fantastic imagination once again
weaves extraordinary images and ideas into a world that is both personal

"He has a savage sense of comedy and a cleverly educated ear for
the haunting casual phrase." -- The Scotsman
"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 `hard core' pornography."
‘Language is the worn coin pressed silently into my hand. Inspector J. Lee of the Nova Police knew them by many names – but he only knew one way to stop them...The only weapon was silence: silence to say goodbye – by silence to say good. "You see, gentlemen, what we call history of the world – and the world is a killer virus...”’
A prophetic vision of a world in which technology has gone haywire, 'The Ticket that Exploded' completes Burroughs’ classic ‘Cut-Up Trilogy’.
'Lee, Kiki, the Nova Police, the Mugwumps, Mr Bradley, Mr Martin – the gang's all here in the novel where Burroughs' cut-up technique came on line. As filthy and boggling as it was in 1968 – would he get away with it today?' Time Out
