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

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
