THE PLACE OF DEAD ROADS
The Places of Dead Roads by William Burroughs. A surreal fable, set in America's Old West, features a cast of notorious characters: The Crying Gun, who breaks into tears at the sight of his opponent; The Priest who goes into gunfights giving his adversaries the last rites; and the Nihilistic Kid himself, who sets out to challenge the morality of small-town America. fantastical and humorous, The Places of Dead Roads continues Burroughs's exploration of society's controlling forces - the State, the Church, women, literature, drugs - with a style utterly unique in the twentieth-century literature. "It's a comedy and a nightmare of Bosch-like visions, extraordinarily precise vivid visualisations, outrageous ideas like mind bombs" - Allen Ginsberg. 268 pp.
