The Wild Boys : A Book of the Dead, Paperback

The Wild Boys : A Book of the Dead Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



In this funny, nightmarish masterpiece of imaginative excess, grotesque characters engage in acts of violent one-upmanship, boundless riches mangle a corner of Africa into a Bacchanalian utopia, and technology, flesh and violence fuse with and undo each other.

A fragmentary, freewheeling novel, it sees wild boys engage in vigorous, ritualistic sex and drug taking, as well as pranksterish guerrilla warfare and open combat with a confused and outmatched army. "The Wild Boys" shows why Burroughs is a writer unlike any other, able to make captivating the explicit and horrific.
