The Cut-Up Trilogy: The Restored Texts Part 3

'In the beginning was the word and the word was bullshit.'

Inspector Lee and the Nova Police have been forced to engage the Nova Mob in one final battle for the planet. This is Burroughs' nightmare vision of scientists and combat troops, of Johnny Yen's chicken-hypnotizing and green Venusian-boy-girls, of ad men and conmen whose destructive language has spread like an incurable disease; a virus and parasite that takes over every human body.

The Cut-Up Trilogy: The Restored Texts Part 3

'In the beginning was the word and the word was bullshit.'

Inspector Lee and the Nova Police have been forced to engage the Nova Mob in one final battle for the planet. This is Burroughs' nightmare vision of scientists and combat troops, of Johnny Yen's chicken-hypnotizing and green Venusian-boy-girls, of ad men and conmen whose destructive language has spread like an incurable disease; a virus and parasite that takes over every human body.

Now newly re-edited, The Ticket That Exploded is the climax of his innovative 'cut-up' Nova trilogy - including The Soft Machine and Nova Express - and is an enthralling, frightening pop art pastiche of music, poetry, sex, advertising and science fiction.
