Product Description


'...Convincing and compelling...accessible and understandable to any educated general reader. The prose is engaging, supple, fluid, readable, and clear. I think the moment for this book is here right now; it illuminates the paradox of perhaps the most out and queer writer in American culture being somehow excluded from most queer canons. Russell's theory explains more of Burroughs than anything else I have read. A well-written, thoroughgoing, excellent piece of scholarship which breaks new ground by relating Burroughs to queer theory...' - Bill Savage, Northwestern University
'...informative and discriminating book...' - Choice

Format: Paperback
Starting with the question "why is Burroughs never considered as a gay writer", this book takesus all the way through Burroughs'novels from Junkie onwards. With detailed looks at the history and culture of America in the 1950s, 60s, 70s and beyond Jamie Russel writes one of the most illuminating books on Burroughs - it's not to be missed.
