"Almost indecently readable . . . captures [Burroughs's] destructive energy, his ferocious pessimism, and the renegade brilliance of his style."-Vogue

With a new preface as well as a final chapter on William S. Burroughs's last years, the acclaimed Literary Outlaw is the only existing full biography of an extraordinary figure. Anarchist, heroin addict, alcoholic, and brilliant writer, Burroughs was the patron saint of the Beats. His avant-garde masterpiece Naked Lunch shook up the literary world with its graphic descriptions of drug abuse and illicit sex-and resulted in a landmark Supreme Court ruling on obscenity. Burroughs continued to revolutionize literature with novels like The Soft Machine and to shock with the events in his life, such as the accidental shooting of his wife, which haunted him until his death. Ted Morgan captures the man, his work, and his friends-Allen Ginsberg and Paul Bowles among them-in this riveting story of an iconoclast.
