Nova Express;

New York: Grove Press, Inc., 1964. Stated First Printing. Cloth. 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’s nightmarish futuristic tale one step further. The diabolical Nova Criminals—Sammy The Butcher, Green Tony, Iron Claws, The Brown Artist, Jacky Blue Note, 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. This surrealist novel is part sci-fi, part Swiftian parody, and always pure Burroughs. Hardcover cloth bound book is flat, bright, square and clean with little to no signs of handling. The Full-color dust jacket has light wear and handling commensurate with age. See photos for condition details. Very good + / very good. Item #49960
