This album really highlights Burroughs the satirist. Hearing Burroughs speaking with his loooong drrryyy draaawwwwwllll really reminds you how he's trying to push your buttons. Burroughs is one of my all time favorite authors to hear read his own stuff, and this CD is no exception in that department.
Plus, as an added bonus, the reading is set to some great music, nice acid jazz and, in the case of the 10+ minute "Junkie's Christmas," traditional x-mas carols, creating one of the most increcdible juxtapoitions in a story of all time and an hilarious piece. All in all, this collection is one of my favorites of Burroughs' readings.
Burrows has a great reading voice and you just got to love the stuff that comes out of this man. The mild hip hop that is sampled for the readings is a pure delight Many selections are from his novels including Spare ass annie from the naked lunch. I hate to read this sort of stuff but it is great to hear in the background. It will raise some eye brows at parties.
I love advise for young people, Junkies Chistmas and Spare ass anni as well as Mildred peirce reporting.
I you are easily offended by explicited sexual language or attacks on the goverment religon and common desesnce please avoid this at all costs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

serendipity. very cool mixture of Hiphopricy's jazz/funk/hiphop grooves and Burrough's always ahead-of-his-time future rants, stream-o-conciousness, and political concerns. Read morePublished on March 6 2003 by S. R Robertson
WSB's humor is terribly underrated. He was deadpan,
with a cynical but wildly hilarious take on the world. Read more
I had heard and like the Disposable Heroes and had a notion of Burroughs as "some writer" when I bought this album. Boy, was I in for an education! Read morePublished on Feb. 7 2001 by Brian Robinson
