William Burroughs: El Hombre Invisible, by Barry Miles

Hardcover in Good Condition



"Miles familiarizes even old close readers with a fine map of Burroughs' mind."  —Allen Ginsberg
Iconoclast; visionary; homosexual crusader; drug advocate; teacher and elder statesman to Jack Kracouac, Allen Ginsberg, and the Beats; anti-hero guru to each successive counter-culture generation—this is a portait of a man who remains one of the most complex and controversial American writers of the 20th century. After killing his wife in a bizarre shooting accident, he moved to Tangier where he lived in male brothel and wrote his celebrated bestseller Naked Lunch—in Newsweek's words "A masterpiece. A cry from Hell."—as a series of letters to Allen Ginsberg. He lived at the Beat Hotel in Paris and spent a decade in London before returning as prodigal son to New York in 1974 after 25 years of self imposed exile.
