The Soft Machine

(1961)
(The first book in the Nova Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
 
Hanged soldiers, North African street urchins, addicted narcotic agents, Spanish rent boys, evil doctors, corrupt judges and monsters from the mythology of history or the laboratories of science - Burroughs is truly the Hieronymous Bosch of our time. In this surreal, savage and brilliantly funny sequel to Naked Lunch, Burroughs's famous 'cut-up' technique, the slicing and random folding in of words, was fully developed, transforming the narrative into an extraordinary, unequalled new form of prose poetry.
