The third and final installment in Burroughs' Nova trilogy, this surrealist novel is part-sci-fi, part-Swiftian parody, and pure Burroughs.
The Soft Machine introduced us to the conditions of a universe where endemic lusts of the mind and body pray upon men, hook them, and turn them into beasts. Nova Express takes William S. Burroughs' nightmarish futuristic tale one step further. The diabolical Nova Criminals - Sammy the Butcher, Green Tony, Iron Claws, the Brown Artist, Jacky Blue Note, and Izzy the Push, to name only a few - have gained control and plan on wreaking untold destruction. It's up to Inspector Lee of the Nova Police to attack and dismantle the word and imagery machine of these "control addicts" before it's too late.

What is this book? an experimental Sci-fi? the disturbing murmurs of some who took too much? a post-modern dystopia? the book that first predicted the Internet? yes. yes. yes. and... Yes!
