Inhaltsangabe: Burroughs' classic, surreal reworking of the myth of the Old West. William Burroughs' 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, Kim Carson, who, with a succession of beautiful sidekicks, sets out to challenge the morality of smalltown America. With a narrative of fantastical proportions and a rich, dry, growling humour, 'The Place of Dead Roads' continues Burroughs' exploration of society's controlling forces -- the State, the Church, women, literature, drugs -- with a style utterly unique in 20th century literature.
Über den Autor: William Burroughs was born in St Louis, Missouri in 1914. Immensely influential among the Beat writers of the 1950s -- notably Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg -- he already had an underground reputation before the appearance of his first important book, 'Naked Lunch'. William Burroughs died in 1997.
