Editorial Reviews

Review

Queer is a stunner. A neglected work that became legendary in its very absence. Los Angeles Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

William S. Burroughs (1914-1997)—guru of the Beat Generation, controversial éminence grise of the international avant-garde, dark prophet, and blackest of black humor satirists—had a range of influence rivaled by few post-World War II writers. His many books include Naked Lunch, Queer, Exterminator!, The Cat Inside, The Western Lands, and Interzone.


Oliver Harris edited The Letters of William S. Burroughs 1945-1959. He is currently a lecturer in American Literature at the University of Keele.

Definitely read this after Junky but before Naked Lunch if you want to get the most out of these books and understand Burroughs. Although the title may turn some people off, the book is as tasteful and literary as anything Burroughs has written, as far as I know. This book and Burroughs are definitely good choices for people who like intelligent, interesting works outside the mainstream of literature.

Captivating at times but ultimately not as enjoyable as some of his other works. Aided by the included contextual information.
