The Burroughs FileWilliam S. Burroughs
Trenchant writings by that sardonic “”hombre invisible,”” William Seward Burroughs, perpetrator of Naked Lunch and other shockers. These malefic and beatific, mordant and hilarious straight-face reports on life are mostly from scatter-shot publications in obscure places, foreign and domestic. Including complete texts from White Subway, Cobblestone Gardens, and The Retreat Diaries, this collection delineates Burroughs’ comprehensive world-view and his “”insurrectionary sense of America’s underside,” as Tom Carson epitomized it in The Village Voice.
