Tripticks, Paperback / softback Book

Tripticks Paperback / softback

Part of the British Literature Series series

Description

As innovative and abrasive as the very best of William Burroughs, Ann Quin's Tripticks offers a scattered account of the narrator's flight across a surreal American landscape, pursued by his "No. 1 X-wife" and her new lover. This masterpiece of pre-punk aesthetics critiques the hypocrisy and consumerism of modern culture while spoofing the "typical" maladjusted family, which in this case includes a father who made his money in ballpoint pens and a mother whose life revolves around her overpampered, all-demanding poodle.

Stylistically, this is Quin's most daring work, prefiguring the formal inventiveness of Kathy Acker.
