Product Description


“From the opening page we immediately get an extraordinarily vivid picture of Burroughs himself, sitting alone in some dingy bar in the Peruvian coastal town of Talara, pencil in hand—his “rum” in the other—pressing his thoughts and observations onto the paper in his own, instantly recognizable style.” —from the introduction by Oliver Harris

About the Author

William Burroughs is recognized as one of the most innovative, politically trenchant, and influential artists of the twentieth century. Born in 1914 into a social register St. Louis family, he became a key figure, along with Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg, in the Beat Generation of writers who emerged in the early 1950s. After leaving America, Burroughs documented his experiences as a heroin addict and a homosexual in Junky and Queer, and his adventures in South America seeking the drug yagé in The Yage Letters, before achieving international notoriety in 1959 with Naked Lunch. Based in Paris, Burroughs then launched his cut-up project and, inspired by the artist Brion Gysin, produced a trilogy of novels—The Soft Machine, The Ticket That Exploded, Nova Express—as well as experiments in tape, film, and photomontage. Having lived in Mexico, Morocco, and Europe, in the 1970s Burroughs returned to America, where he eventually settled in Lawrence, Kansas. He completed a final trilogy of novels—Cities of the Red Night, The Place of Dead Roads, The Western Lands—as well as collaborating with many artists in various media. He died on August 2, 1997.

3.0 out of 5 stars For those who like the cursive word ... May 29 2008
By Karl Nietzsche - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Not Burroughs' best writing or most provocative -- but is there really any bad Burroughs' writing? The most interesting aspect is reading his handwriting in his own journal, a plus for all journal keepers out there who like to read the cursive word. A definite must for hardcore WSB fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars what about non-academics? April 30 2008
By The Passionate Ornithologist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Any chance this will be published in paperback? $59 is steep. So unfortunate the price keeps most of us degenerate Burroughs' readers at arm's length from owning a copy.
