"If god made anything better he kept it for himself" WSB, after banging a speedball in Mexico City
on October 1, 2014
Too much to day here, it is all good. Reading this book gave me a burning freeze. There is more than meets the eye here, straightforward prose, unapologetic realism. Characters so vivid you would swear you have met them or seen them in some sordid venue.
Straight up, William Seward Burroughs was brilliant, eccentric, depraved but most of all actually hilarious in his dry candor of human observation including himself. It's not just a book about junk, it's about an alternate lifestyle and the colorful characters that inhabit it.
