Read in April, 2010

Oddly compelling, SHORT, odd little book about Burroughs' time in run-down bars in Mexico City, the book culminates in an odd trek to South America in search of mind-reading herbs (?). Throughout the book, Burroughs is trying to romance/ sex-up a "straight" guy who is, I dunno, not so straight, maybe? Interesting to read about the old times when a person could be a bar-bum on basically no money at all.
