Description

First published in 1972, Ann Quin’s fourth andfinal novel was a radical break from the introspective style she had developedin Three and Passages: a declaration of independence from all expectations. Brashlyexperimental, ribald, and hilarious, Tripticksmaps new territories for the novel – aspiring to a form of pop art via thedrawings of the artist Carol Annand and anticipating the genre-busting work ofKathy Acker through collage and gory satire. Splatteringits pages with the story of a man being chased across a nightmarish America byhis ‘first X-wife’ and her ‘schoolboy gigolo’, Tripticks was ground zero for the collision of punk energy withhigh style.
