Interzone by William S Burroughs( Book )

21 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."--Cover, Penguin ed
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 685 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
Naked lunch the restored text by William S Burroughs( )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unnerving tale of a narcotics addict unmoored in New York, Tangiers, and ultimately a nightmarish wasteland known as Interzone, its formal innovation, formerly taboo subject matter, and tour de force execution have exerted their influence on the work of authors like Thomas Pynchon, J.G. Ballard, and William Gibson; on the relationship of art and obscenity; and on the shape of music, film, and media generally. [This book] includes many editorial corrections to errors present in previous editions, and incorporates [the author's] notes on the text, several essays he wrote over the years about the book ... -Back cover

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
