William S. Burroughs Ý 8 Summary

William S. Burroughs Ý 8 Summary Y recreated the author's original text word by word from archival typescripts and places the book's contents against a lively historical background in a comprehensive introduction Here as well for the first time are Burroughs' own unpublished introduction and an entire omitted chapter along with many lost passages as well as auxiliary texts by Allen Ginsberg and othe. I absolutely adore Burroughs' prose; but I just couldn't find any space where I could insert myself in the book It'll certainly appeal a lot to those who have struggled with drug addiction; but I just couldn't get much out of it
