While living in Tangiers in the 1950s, Burroughs wrote "a startling collection of short stories, autobiographical sketches, letters, and diary entries, all of which showcase his trademark mordant humor, while delineating the addictions to drugs and sex that are the central metaphors of his work."--Page 4 of cover
Last words : the final journals of William S. Burroughs by William S Burroughs( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Last Words: The Final Journals of William S. Burroughs is the most intimate work Burroughs ever wrote, a complex portrait of Burroughs at the end of his life, coming to terms with aging and death." "Culled from journal entries of the last nine months of his life, Last Words spans the realms of cultural criticism, personal memoir, and fiction. Classic Burroughs concerns - rants on U.S. drug policy, contempt of the state of the human race, his love for his cats - permeate the book. He breaks into classic "routines" and provides frequent commentary on whatever he is reading - from high literature to low-brow thrillers. The "Old Man" emerges as frequently comical, sometimes meditative, always engaged - a commentator on the state of the world and the self. Most significantly, Last Words reveals the most open and vulnerable Burroughs we have ever seen. His reflections on the deaths of his friends Allen Ginsberg and Timothy Leary provide a window on the preparations Burroughs was making for his own death - a quest for absolution marked by a profound sense of guilt and loss."--Jacket

The cat inside by William S Burroughs( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is an unexpected side to William Burroughs - the author of weird and disturbing fictions had a great fondness for cats. This is his earnest appreciation of the cats he knew, a record of his dreams of cats, and a meditation on the long, mysterious relationship between cats and their human hosts. In The Cat Inside, Burroughs is touching when writing of the many strays he took in over the years, disdainful of dogs ('self-righteous as a lynch mob'), always erudite and surprisingly caring - it is a genuine revelation, for Burroughs fans and cat lovers alike." -- Book cover
