About the Author
Praise For The Place of Dead Roads…
"It's a comedy . . . a nightmare . . . Bosch-like visions, extraordinarily precise vivid visualizations . . . outrageous ideas like mind bombs."—Allen Ginsberg
"Powerful . . . a raging torrent of words and images . . . Burroughs, like Dalí, first draws from his insanity, then selects with reason. And what a master of the mother tongue he is—sculpted sentences, poetic prose, riffs that make you gasp in amazement . . . More accessible and murkily poetic than ever."—Los Angeles Times Book Review
"One of the wildest rides into the Wild West, and other parts known and unknown, we will ever have."—The Washington Post Book World
"A moving personal saga as well as a record of revolutionary vision."—Chicago Tribune Book World
