really liked it
bookshelves: american-lit

This is probably the longest Burroughs biography I've read. It goes into masses of detail but the problem is it uses pseudonyms for the names of some real people who presumably don't want to be identified. My favourite biography is the one by Barry Miles which is shorter and more concise, but I would say that both are worth a read. Perhaps the Miles one first for an introduction then this. I liked this one because it details his road trips through Mexico to see the volcano and various anecdotes.
