Well. This is a touch interesting, isn't it?

this is cool! i really dig burroughs-related stuff, moreso than his actual work. i like junky, queer and naked lunch and appreciate what he was trying to do and all, but his life is rather entertaining to read about. as oscar wilde said: "some poets live the poetry they cannot write, whilst others write the poetry they dare not realise"...i think burroughs did a little of both. ;)

i actually found JUNKY to be really boring, but i'm a big fan of NOVA EXPRESS, THE TICKET THAT EXPLODED and others in that era.

(oddly, even though i own a copy, i've never read NAKED LUNCH. plan to though.)

burroughs was patchy,t hough, i do agree.
