A propos de cet article

New York: Grove Press. 1964. F First Edition Thus, Later Printing. S Paperback. Very Good. SIGNED BY WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS. Slight rubbing and browning to wrappers (chiefly at foredges); slight internal uniform browning (chiefly to edges). 155, [5] pages. Later issue of Maynard & Miles A10b (originally published in this format in 1965; first hardcover edition appeared in 1964). "Seventh Printing, 1977" (title page verso); notable for lower wrapper blurbs by Mary McCarthy, Terry Southern and Marshall McLuhan. Signed and inscribed by Burroughs in black ink on title page recto: "To Steve Lowe / William S. Burroughs / October 22, 1984". Provenance: From the estate of Steven Harrison Lowe (formerly of Desert Hot Springs, CA). From the early 1970s until 1997, Lowe was an assistant to and collaborator with author, artist, cultural phenomenon and outcast William S. Burroughs. The two men enjoyed a long friendship and created art pieces, many of which were shown in the 1980s and 1990s at Casa Sin Nombre, Lowe's art gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. William S. Burroughs (1914-97) was born in the Midwest, and graduated from Harvard with an art degree in 1936. He was often a rascal, notorious for his addiction to heroin, and the shooting of his wife at a party in Mexico (the so-called "William Tell" incident). He'd worked and played in Vienna, Paris, London, Tangiers, Chicago, Mexico, and New York before finally retiring to Lawrence, Kansas in the 1990s, where he died. He stood the literary establishment on its ear in 1959 with the publication of his Beat classic Naked Lunch. During the 1980s, Burroughs combined his predilection for firearms with his desire to paint. His "gunshot paintings" were nearly as controversial in the art world as Naked Lunch had been in the literary world decades earlier. Signed & Inscribed By Author. N° de réf. du libraire L071065

Synopsis :

[Read by Ramiz Monsef]

The third and final installment in Burroughs' Nova trilogy, this surrealist novel is part sci-fi, part Swiftian parody, 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.

About the Author:

William S. Burroughs (1914-1997) was an American author, painter, and spoken-word performer of wide-ranging cultural influence. A postmodernist and a key figure of the beat generation, he focused his art on a relentless subversion of the conventions of modern American society, as reflected in his often darkly humorous and sardonic satire. He wrote numerous novels and novellas, as well as six short story collections and four collections of essays.
