Burroughs File, Paperback by Burroughs, William S., ISBN 087286152X, ISBN-13 9780872861527, Brand New, Free shipping in the US Short stories exploring American society and drug addiction are accompanied by selections from the author's scrapbooks and diaries
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. Also included are essays on Burroughs by Alan Ansen and Paul Bowles, and facsimile pages from the famous cut-up scrapbooks of the mid-century: The Book of Hours, John Brady's Book, and The Old Farmer's Almanac.
