About the Author:

Sylvère Lotringer is Jean Baudrillard Chair at the European Graduate School, Switzerland, and Professor Emeritus of French literature and philosophy at Columbia University.

From Library Journal:

This massive collection includes published as well as unpublished interviews with Burroughs and transcripts of conversations with celebrities like Tennessee Williams and David Bowie. For the most part, the material is arranged geographically and chronologically. In addition to Burroughs's life and art, the topics covered reflect the concerns of his novels narcotics addiction and drug laws, control and deconditioning, homosexuality, overpopulation, and censorship. Of particular note after September 11 are Burroughs's comments on terrorism. Burroughs, as Lotringer notes, hated being interviewed, and that's evident, particularly in the flat responses made in some of the shorter pieces. There is a good deal of repetition, and the editor's decision to provide bibliographic citations at the end of the volume rather than in a headnote is a real inconvenience to the reader, who must flip back and forth to find the source of each interview. Those industrious enough to sift through the silt will no doubt find their share of gold nuggets, but most readers will be adequately served by the more selective Conversations with William S. Burroughs. For research-level collections. William Gargan, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., CUNY
