lukas, May 28, 2014 (view all comments by lukas)
William Seward Burroughs was nothing less than the most radical American writer of the 20th century, challenging not only conventional morality and thinking, but the very nature of what makes a novel. He was linked with the Beats, but his work goes far past them. That said, he's not the easiest writer to get into, although the more you read, the more you'll see how he was really creating one huge work of art. "The Ticket That Exploded" is part of his cut-up trilogy that includes "The Soft Machine" and "Nova Express." There is some speculations that the phrase "heavy metal kid" inspired the name of the genre. There was also a band called Nova Mob, which makes Burroughs the rare writer who not just influenced other authors, but also musicians, filmmakers and artists. Exterminate all rational thought.
