One of my favorite essay collections. Burroughs zips between topics like the speed junky he was known to be. Whether discussing linguistics and social issues or space travel and mind control, Hemingway and Fitzgerald or Beckett and Proust, he approached the page with a zany, freakish exuberance that both reflects and, paradoxically, sets him apart from the rest of the Beat Generation authors with whom he’s so commonly lumped. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau
