Short Desription

William S. Burroughs - Naked Biography is the biography of William S. Burroughs, an American novelist, philosopher, essayist, social critic, painter and spoken word performer. Much of Burroughs'' work is semi-autobiographical, drawn from his experiences as an opiate addict, a condition that marked the last fifty years of his life. A primary member of the Beat Generation, he was an avant-garde author who affected popular culture as well as literature. In 1984, he was elected to the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. Since 1997, several postumous collections of Burroughs'' work have been published. A few months after his death, a collection of writings spanning his entire career, Word Virus, was published. Burroughs is often called one of the greatest and most influential writers of the twentieth century, most notably by Norman Mailer whose quote on Burroughs, "The only American novelist living today who may conceivably be possessed by genius", appears on many Burroughs publications. William S. Burroughs - Naked Biography is highly recommended for those interested in reading more about this talented writer.
