About this Item: Picador - A Trademark of Henry Holt and Company, New York, 2001. Trade Paperback. Condition: Near Fine. Eleventh Printing. 306 Pages. First published in the United States by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. Covers show very light wear. Interior text pages are flawless. A good old-fashion shoot-out in the American West of the frontier days serves as the springboard for this hyperkinetic adventure in which gunslingers, led by Kim Carson, fight for galactic freedom. The Place of Dead Roads is the second novel in the trilogy with Cities of the Red Night and The Western Lands. One of the wildest rides into the Wild West, and other parts known and unknown, we will ever have. Burroughs first draws from his insanity, then selects with reason. He is a master of the mother tongue and he has sculpted sentences, poetic prose, riffs that make you gasp in amazement. More murkily poetic than ever. Burroghs was born in St. Louis in 1914 and he is best know for his Naked Lunch and Junky. He died in 1997. The original title of this book was The Johnson Family.which was a turn-of-the-century expression to designate good bums and thieves that elaborated in a code of conduct. A Johnson honors his obligations and he is a good man to do business with. Size: 5 3/4" x 8 1/2". Seller Inventory # 18525

About this Item: Picador/Henry Holt, New York, 2001. Trade Paperback. Condition: Fine. First Edition Thus. The second book in Burroughs' late-career trilogy ("Cities of the Red Night," Vol. 1 and "The Western Lands," Vol. 3). Burroughs uses a western genre framework featuring gunfighter Kim Carson and his gang of outlaws fighting for galactic freedom in this speculative fiction fantasy. He develops his concepts of individual freedom and independence from government in a non-chronological, episodic flashback format in which Kim Carson dies in chapter one in a style familiar to readers of "Naked Lunch." First Printing, First Picador Edition (as stated, with complete numberline). Trade paperback, about 5 1/2 by 8 1/4 inches, 306 pages in light card wrappers. Front cover shows graphic design of highway stretching to horizon in red, black & white. Back cover contains small photo of Burroughs and four blurbs praising book. Wrappers and text are complete, clean and unmarked; no significant flaws, no tears, no creasing or bumping. A collectable copy. Seller Inventory # 005645

Front and rear panels of dustwrapper bright. ***234 mm x 168 mm. 306 pages. ***'In this new novel, William S. Burroughs does for the nineteenth century what Cities of the Red Night did for the eighteenth. Burroughs loves the American West of frontier days, and he sees that setting as the basis and background - and in a senses the springboard - for the Place of Dead Roads. ***The book opens in 1899 with a good old fashioned shoot-out in the Boulder, Colorado, cemetery between one William Seward Hall, 65, a real-estate speculator, and Mike Chase. Who these men are and why the shoot-out are questions dealt with and ultimately answered as the novel wends its way brilliantly through time and space until it has come full circle. Here, as with a film, "time" can be run backward and forward. You can speed it up and slow it down. Burroughs sees human history as a vast film spread out in front of him, with himself the master director. Here, as in all major Burroughs works, good and evil are in a state of conflict and delicate balance, with the outcome uncertain.' (Quote from inside front of dust wrapper blurb). ***First impression of the first UK hardback edition in its original dustwrapper.
