About this product
- DescriptionWilliam Burroughs was one of post-war America's most controversial and influential writers. This is the authoritative, indispensable anthology of his greatest work. Beginning early in William Burroughs' career with 'Junky', 'Queer' and a vel co-authored with Jack Kerouac, 'Word Virus' follows his trajectory through the major vels - including 'Naked Lunch' - to his final book, 'My Education', a series of meditations on his own extraordinary dream life. Biographical prefaces to each chapter, and an introductory essay by Beat historian Ann Douglas, provide invaluable context to this collection of the very best of William Burroughs, a unique and visionary writer.
- Author BiographyWilliam Burroughs was born in St Louis, Missouri in 1914. Immensely influential among the Beat writers of the 1950s - notably Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg - he already had an underground reputation before the appearance of his first important book, 'Naked Lunch'. Originally published by the daring and influential Olympia Press (the original publishers of Henry Miller) in France in 1959, it aroused great controversy on publication and was not available in the US until 1962 and in the UK until 1964. The book was adapted for film by David Cronenberg in 1991. William Burroughs died in 1997.
