really liked it
bookshelves: criticism, culture, beat, amok, writing

Burroughs writes terse essays that range from cut up techniques, control, drugs, politics, the word virus, guns, and opinions of various authors such as Proust, Beckett, Hemingway, Fitzgerald etc. The essays are short and are lacking in depth due to length limitations; this is made up for by his unique tone that gives his writings the pervert grandfather voice.
