Interest seems to have grown in Burroughs since his death, as there's been at least one documentary and two feature films in which he's a character (currently "Kill Your Darlings"). "Naked Lunch" remains a seminal underground text, but I still don't think people appreciate how radical and influential Burroughs was. He's one of the rare writers whose influences hops across the border and into film (Cronenberg) and music (Joy Division, Steely Dan). This is a witty, opinionated and iconoclastic collection of essays about his fellows writers (Hemingway, Kerouac, Fitzgerald, Beckett) and a wide range of topics, including psychology, space, the intelligence community, cut-ups, literary criticism and Wilhelm Reich.
