Tripticks by Ann Quin (on license to And Other Stories)

Ann Quin - The Feminist Novelist Who Turned “On the Road” on Its Head
The most stylistically daring of all Quin’s stylistically daring books, “Tripticks” also marks a departure. If Quin serves as a literary bridge between Virginia Woolf and Kathy Acker—as she’s been described—then this is the book that gets her onto the Acker side of the canyon. Her three previous novels showcase a quieter psychological interiority. Here the prose is cacophonous and rude, fragmented by lists and quotations. Polyvocal yet monologic, often funny, creatively punctuated, it feels somehow both manic and static, and is, at times, so syntactically complex as to approach a ludic nonsense. In particular, much has been made of this book’s linguistic relationship to the cut-up methods of William S. Burroughs. There’s Ian Patterson, in the London Review of Books, noting that Quin used the techniques of “writers like Burroughs to create a fast-moving, jump-cutting, semi-absurd, road-trip quest narrative.” Meanwhile, Becca Rothfeld, in The New York Review of Books, points out that Quin rejected any suspected Burrovian influence, but concludes, “ ‘Tripticks’ reads like a machismo mash- up by William Burroughs.”
