About this title


William S. Burroughs died in August 1997 at the age of 83. A junkie for much of his life, he nonetheless survived all the younger Beat poets who saw him as their mentor. Graham Caveney has researched Burroughs' life and re-examined his complete writings and his forays into film, rock music and painting. The story of Burroughs' life from his ivy-league background through his early years of low-life in New York, his years of exile in Tangier, Paris and London following his accidental killing of his wife, his return to New York and old age in Kansas, is interwoven with an examination of his writings and of his collaborations with others such as Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg.
