Description

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.

Just amazing--a glimpse inside the manifesto of The Rewrite Department with practical demonstrations throughout. The last 30 pages are mindblowingly good. A bit less sparkling in wit and black humor than The Soft Machine, but still a master class in postmodernity.
