Read full description of the books:
I am not a Burroughs fan. This would doubtless be a scintillating read for those who are. I read it because my wife brought it home and I had so thoroughly enjoyed reading Subterranean Kerouac, and I hoped it would be similar. It isn't; it's as much a study as it is a biography, and it is written by someone far more convinced of Burroughs gifts and genius than I am. There is too much hagiography here for my tastes, too much willingness to shine over Burroughs difficult personality, his drug abuse, the sordid tale of the killing of his wife, etc. I generally love the Beat writers, I very much like the novels of Jean Genet, and I am convinced that Nelson Algren is a neglected American literary giant, waiting for a champion to rediscover him, so by all rights I should love Burroughs...but I don't. I did like this book though. Sorry, that's not much of a review. Cut it up and repaste it together randomly and maybe it will be Shakespeare.
