Reviews

"Miles traces threads of Burroughs' images from childhood to tough elder genius, isolating sensitive themes, following recurrences and evolution of routines, clarifying Burroughs' comic pathetic heroic philosophies and insights into coherent whole. Miles familiarises even old close readers with a fine map of Burroughs' mind." * Allan Ginsberg * "There can be no more effective introduction." * Q * "Gives shape to a life that would otherwise seem crowded and aimless." * Independent on Sunday *
