About the Author:

WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS (1914 1997) was the author of numerous novels, including Nova Express, The Ticket That Exploded, The Soft Machine, and The Wild Boys, and was a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. JAMES GRAUERHOLZ was Burroughs s longtime secretary and editor. BARRY MILES has been involved for years with Beat literature as a scholar and participant. Among his books are The Beat Hotel and biographies of Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and Jack Kerouac.

Review:

A masterpiece. A cry from hell, a brutal, terrifying, and savagely funny book that swings between uncontrolled hallucination and fierce, exact satire. --Newsweek

Ever since Naked Lunch...Williams S. Burroughs has been ordained as America s most incendiary artist. --Los Angeles Times

Burroughs possesses a special literary gift....[Naked Lunch] takes a coldly implacable look at the dark side of our nature.... --Books of the Century, New York Times
