really liked it
Recommended for: People with a writer's block
Read in March, 2008

Burroughs on Proust, Hemmingway, Freud, control, space travel, biological/genocidal warfare, consciousness, the Great Gatsby, writing, reading, coincidence... this collection of letters almost reads like a book. Not the first Burroughs I'd give someone ("Cities of the Red Night" for that), but definably one for the writers in the crowd.
