William Burroughs : El Hombre Invisible, Paperback

William Burroughs : El Hombre Invisible Paperback



Iconoclast; visionary; homosexual crusader; drug advocate; teacher and elder statesman to Jack Kracouac, Allen Ginsberg and the Beats; anti-hero guru to each successive counter-culture generation: Willaim Burroughs remains one of the most complex and controversial American writers of the twentieth century.

A longtime heroin addict, Burroughs preferred to live abroad, away from America's Draconian drug laws.

After killing his wife in a bizarre shooting accident, he moved to Tangier where he lived in male brothel and wrote his celebrated bestseller Naked Lunch - in Newsweek's words 'A masterpiece.

A cry from Hell' - as a series of letters to Allen Ginsberg.

He lived at the Beat Hotel in Paris and spent a decade in London before returning as prodigal son to New York in 1974 after 25 years of self imposed exile.
