Brand new. Hanged soldiers, North African street urchins, addicted narcotics agents, Spanish rent boys, evil doctors, corrupt judges and monsters from the mythology of history or the laboratories of science. In this surreal, savage and brilliantly funny novel, Burrough's famous "cut-up" technique takes us even further into the dark recesses of his imagination. The slicing and random folding in of words transforms the narrative into an extraordinary, unequalled new form of prose poetry only he could create.

"Hard, derisive, inventive, free, funny, serious, poetic." John Didion.
"(Shows) his superb,hard-edged satirical visions of cancerous and addictive consumerism; his elegaic and poetic invocations of sadness and dislocation; his enormous fertility of ideas and imagery." Will Self, The Guardian.
