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
Naked lunch : the restored text by William S Burroughs( )

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.

The cat inside by William S Burroughs( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 34 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
