The Burroughs File

William 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.
