    Decent collection of short fiction Possibly the driest language I ve read in any Burroughs work Though some of thenightmarish, quasi sci fi elements of his better known work pop up, much of this deals farwith conventional reality, lashing out at the world s hypocrisies and oppressions Not a bad work, but recommendedfor Burroughs completists.


  2. Maggie Siebert Maggie Siebert says:

    my first burroughs i liked it very brief but i love the sparseness of his language and the freewheeling nature of these stories the poem at the beginning was a little hackneyed but that s okay looking forward to reading something of his that s a bitsubstantial.

    This was my first Burroughs book, and I m unsure what to make of it A very brief short story collection I don t know if this is Burroughs typical writing style, but a lot of the stories were hard to follow The characters weren t named and it was easy to get lost in the pronouns There were a few I liked, and I have an essay collection on my To Read list that I still intend to try, so it wasn t a major turn off, just nothing noteworthy.

    Pretty good, but not totally exciting Did realize this was true story, which I didn t know before hand Could have Evenaction than what they went through afterwards in the clean up Was interesting in parts and dry in others You decide I did enjoy the book, thoughotherwise I would never had finished it.


  6. Rich Meyer Rich Meyer says:

    An excellent collection of short fiction by Burroughs, and a rare one that I hadn t been able to find until just recently, though I have heard several parts of it on some of his CDs Definitely recommended as on of the last great American authors.


  7. Nicolai Nicolai says:

    Rehash of himself, only gets the second star because I really like Burroughs writing, but this is kind of embarassing and the illustrations don t help You re better off downloading his Thanksgiving Prayer somewhere.

    Ho provato per la seconda volta a leggere Burroughs, non riesco troppo splatter L unico autore che non riesco a leggere tra i grandi della Beat Generation
