Beginning with his very early writing (including a chapter from his and Jack Kerouacs never-before-seen collaborative novel), Word Virus follows the arc Burroughss remarkable career, from his darkly hilarious routines to the experimental cut-up novels to Cities of the Red Night and The Cat Inside.

Beautifully edited and complemented by James Grauerholzs illuminating biographical essays, Word Virus charts Burroughss major themes and places the work in the context of the life. It is an excellent tool for the scholar and a delight for the general reader. Throughout a career that spanned half of the twentieth century, William S. Burroughs managed continually to be a visionary among writers. When he died in 1997, the world of letters lost its most elegant outsider.
