9780007341924: The Ticket That Exploded
Críticas:

‘As filthy and boggling as it was in 1968 – would he get away with it today?’ Time Out

‘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

‘He has a savage sense of comedy and a cleverly educated ear for the haunting casual phrase.’ Scotsman

‘In Mr Burroughs’s hands, writing reverts to acts of magic, as though he were making some enormous infernal encyclopaedia of all the black impulses and acts that, once made, would shut the fiends away forever.’ New York Times

‘His Swiftian vision of a processed, pre-packaged life, a kind of electro-chemical totalitarianism, often evokes the black laughter of hilarious horror.’ Playboy

Praise for William Burroughs:

'Burroughs is the greatest satirical writer since Jonathan Swift.' Jack Kerouac

'Burroughs' voice is hard, derisive, inventive, free, funny, serious, poetic, indelibly American, a voice in which one hears transistor radios and old movies and all the clichés and all the cons and all the newspapers, all the peculiar optimism, all the failure.' Joan Didion

'The only American novelist who may conceivably be possessed by genius.' Norman Mailer

'In the English language, William Burroughs is the greatest writer alive. His imagination has tackled head-on the post-war world, with its huge bureaucracies and sinister complexes. He has a paranoid vision, but as he himself said: the psychotic is someone who knows what's really going on.' J. G. Ballard, Sunday Times

‘William Burroughs broadened people’s conception of what makes humanity. In that way, he really was an American hero, a hero writer, and also just a great man.’ Lou Reed

Reseña del editor:

This is the second novel, alongside ‘The Soft Machine’ and ‘Nova Express’, in William Burroughs’ classic ‘Cut-Up Trilogy’.

A prophetic vision of a world in which technology has gone haywire, ‘The Ticket That Exploded’ continues the adventures of Agent Lee in his mission to investigate and subvert the methods of mind control being used by The Nova Mob. Experimental, unnerving and compelling in equal measure, this is a completely original work of science fiction and a gripping moral and political fable from post-war America’s most controversial and influential writer.

Descripción Fourth Estate. 1 Paperback(s), 2010. soft. Estado de conservación: New. Following The Soft Machine, this second novel from William S. Burroughs's Cut-Up Trilogy continues the adventures of Inspector Lee in his mission to investigate and subvert the methods of mind control being used by the Nova Mob. Here Burroughs explores his idea of language as a virus, and employs the "fold-in" method—a variation of his "cut-up" technique—to produce a vision of a world in which technology has gone haywire. One of the original and most influential Beat writers, Burroughs created spontaneous writing by cutting up existing manuscripts and randomly rearranging them. In the early 1960s, following the publication of his scandalous novel Naked Lunch, Burroughs embarked on what would be called the Cut-Up Trilogy or the Nova Trilogy, producing three novels that follow an agent named Lee and his encounters with members of the Nova Mob."In Mr. Burroughs's hands, writing reverts to acts of magic, as though he were making some enormous infernal encyclopedia of all the black impulses and acts that, once made, would shut the fiends away forever."—NYTimes 168.
