Perilous Passage is an account of Terry Wilson’s lifetime apprenticeship under the master shamanic practitioner, Brion Gysin, the hidden master of the avant-garde, of whom William Burroughs said, “He is the only man I respect.” The book focuses on events as they developed just prior to and after Gysin’s death in 1986 and details the extreme psychic ‘Third Mind’ eff ects known as ‘The Process.’ Perilous Passage is a cautionary tale about the uses and abuses of power, a paranoid espionage thriller that includes transcribed audio hallucinations, notes, cutups, interview format, and collaged material. Like Gysin and Burroughs, Wilson treats language itself as a parasitic invader which must be resisted, broken up and reassembled. This book is about how Gysin’s magic was passed on and is being carried into the future.

From the Inside Flap:

Perilous Passage is an account of Wilson's apprenticeship under the tutelage of the master shamanic practitioner, Brion Gysin, and focuses on events as they developed just prior to and after Gysin's death. This book details the extreme psychic "Third Mind" effects known as the Process. Wilson describes his mentor as resolutely refusing to "teach," without ever ceasing to do so. "Brion did not confront people bluntly. The effect of his lessons, conversely, could be brutally blunt. Sink-or-swim blunt." Perilous Passage finalizes Wilson's 'Green Base Trilogy' which commenced with Dreams of Green Base and 'D' Train. His other book, Here to Go, is a classic book of interviews with Brion Gysin documenting the life, work and philosophy of this brilliant avant-garde figure.

About the Author:

Wilson, currently lives in London, England, and his books are an account of his apprenticeship under the tutelage of Brion Gysin, legendary "avant garde" maestro, peerless painter/writer/inventor/mentor and accomplished shaman. Perilous Passage finalises Wilson's Green Base Trilogy which commenced with Dreams of a Green Base and "D" Train.
