With an introduction by Oliver Harris, author of William Burroughs and the Secret of Fascination and new editions of two Burroughs trilogies (Junky, Queer, The Yage Letters Redux and Restored versions of Nova Express, The Soft Machine and The Ticket That Exploded).

Original reviews for:

"…an integrity beyond corruption…Burroughs convinces us he has seen things beyond description."
—John Updike, in The New Yorker

"Success cannot spoil William Burroughs' raw, raunchy talent, not age dim his snarling iconoclasm."
Publishers Weekly

William S. Burroughs was born on February 5, 1914, in St. Louis, Missouri, and became one of the founding figures of the Beat Movement. An addict for years, he crafted books like Junky and Naked Lunch, which were harrowing, often grotesque looks at drug culture. He is cited as a major influence on countercultural figures in the world of music as well and worked on several recording projects. Burroughs died in Kansas in 1997.

Oliver Harris’ life as a Burroughsian began in 1984 with a PhD at Oxford that nobody would supervise. He has since gone on to publish many essays and ten books, including William Burroughs and the Secret of Fascination and new editions of two Burroughs trilogies (Junky, Queer, The Yage Letters Redux and Restored versions of Nova Express, The Soft Machine and The Ticket That Exploded), with another trilogy to come in 2020 (Minutes to Go, The Exterminator and BATTLE INSTRUCTIONS). He is Professor of American Literature at Keele University, President of the European Beat Studies Network, and the proud father of four daughters.
