Summary
"The Soft Machine is Burroughs' original cut-up novel, first in an experimental trilogy that includes Nova Express and The Ticket That Exploded. A surreal space-age odyssey and a total assault on the powers that turn humans into machines, the book draws the reader into an unmappable textual space where nothing is true and everything is permitted"--Back cover
