In The Ticket That Exploded, William S. Burroughs's 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.

Review:

"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."
-- Spectator

From the Back Cover:

‘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
