Product description

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
