About this title


Malcolm McNeill created nearly a hundred paintings, illustrations, and sketches for Beat writer William S. Burroughs proto-graphic novel, a book-length meditation on time, power, control, and corruption that evoked the Mayan codices and specifically, the Mayan god of death, Ah Pook. These, finally, are seeing the light of day in The Lost Art of Ah Pook. (Burroughs’ text will not be included). McNeill is an exemplary craftsman and visionary painter whose images have languished for over 30 years, unseen. Even in a context divorced from the words, they represent a stunning precursor to the graphic novel form to come. Sara J. Van Ness contributes an historical essay chronicling the long history of Burroughs’ and McNeill’s work together, including its incomplete publishing history with Rolling Stone’s Straight Arrow Press, the excerpt that ran in Rush magazine, and the text that was published without pictures.

About the Author:

Malcolm Mc Neill is an Emmy award winning artist and writer, and Observed While Falling is the account of an event that should be of interest to all creative minds, regardless of their interest in William Burroughs, or familiarity with his other work. 

Sara J. Van Nes is the author of Watchmen as Literature: A Critical Study of the Graphic Novel (McFarland, 2010). She currently lives in New Jersey, where she teaches English and a course on graphic novels and visual literacy.
