William S. Burroughs könyvei a rukkolán
William S. Burroughs - Interzone
Interzone portrays the development of Burroughs's mature writing style by presenting a selection of pieces from the mid-1950s. His outrageous tone of voice represents the exorcism of four decades of oppressive sexual and social conditioning. Burroughs's close observations of humanity its ugliness and ignorance invites the reader to dispense with their traditional notions of decorum, and taste the world as he sees it.
William S. Burroughs - A halott utak vidéke
William S. Burroughs, a XX. század egyik kultikus íróguruja (a Meztelen ebéd szerzője). Utolsó regénytrilógiájának második kötete, amely folytatása A vörös éjszaka városainak, a tőle megszokott stílusban nyújt utopisztikus képet az emberről.

William S. Burroughs - Word Virus
William Burroughs was one of post-war America's most controversial and influential writers. This is the authoritative, indispensable anthology of his greatest work. Beginning early in William Burroughs' career with 'Junky', 'Queer' and a novel co-authored with Jack Kerouac, 'Word Virus' follows his trajectory through the major novels - including 'Naked Lunch' - to his final book, 'My Education', a series of meditations on his own extraordinary dream life. Biographical prefaces to each chapter, and an introductory essay by Beat historian Ann Douglas, provide invaluable context to this collection of the very best of William Burroughs, a unique and visionary writer.
William S. Burroughs - Ghost of Chance
Ghost of Chance is an adventure story set in the jungle of Madagascar and filled with the obsessions that mark the work of the man who Norman Mailer once called, "the only American writer possessed by genius." While tripping through the author's trademark concerns?drugs, paranoia, and lemurs, this short novel tells an important story about environmental devastation in a way that only Burroughs can tell it.
William S. Burroughs - Nova Express
The diabolical Nova Criminals now include the nightmarish characters of Sammy the Butcher, Iron Claws, Izzy the Push and the Brown Artist, and are poised to wreak untold destruction on the world with their new-found control. Only Inspector Lee of the Nova Police has any chance of stopping them, by dismantling the word and image machine before its too late. The third book of Burroughs' linguistically prophetic cut-up trilogy following The Soft Machine and The Ticket That Exploded Nova Express is a hilarious and Swiftian parody of bureaucracy and the frailty of the human animal.
William S. Burroughs - My Education
My Education is Burroughs's last novel, first published two years before his death in 1997. It is a book of dreams, collected over several decades and as close to a memoir as we will see. The dreams cover themes from the mundane and ordinary conversations with his friends Allen Ginsberg or Ian Sommerville, feeding his cats, procuring drugs or sex to the erotic, bizarre and visionary. Always a rich source of imagery in Burroughs's own fiction, in this book dreams become a direct and powerful force in themselves.
Alan E. Nourse - William S. Burroughs - Pengefutár
A 21. századi Amerika egészségügyi rendszere összeomlott, a törvénykezés az ellátást az állampolgárok teljes és végleges sterilizálásához köti, a kórházakban pedig az orvosokat komputerek és robotok váltják föl. Mindezzel a kormányzat a vérengzésbe torkolló egészséglázadásokra keresett megoldást, de a helyzetet némiképp túlreagálta. A rendszerből kikerültekkel illegalitásba menekült orvosok foglalkoznak csak, akik ha kell, műtenek a konyhaasztalon is. Ám az egészségügyi készleteket a hatóságok szigorúan felügyelik, rendelkezéseik kijátszása csupán alvilági módszerekkel sikerülhet. Billy az ellenálló orvosok köré szerveződött földalatti mozgalom tagja, csempész, azaz "pengefutár". Az életét kockáztatja azért, hogy mások megmenekülhessenek. A rendszer ellensége ő, mégis az amerikai nép egyik utolsó reménysége. E könyv utóélete legalább olyan izgalmas, mint maga a történet. Alan E. Nourse 1974-es regényét Hollywood leopciózta, és meg is kezdődtek az előmunkálatok. A legendás William Burroughs irodalmi forgatókönyvet készített belőle, a film azonban sosem valósult meg. A forgatókönyv végül Ridley Scott kezébe került, akinek nagyon megtetszett a cím, így megvásárolta a jogokat... hogy egy egészen más filmet forgathasson le, a Szárnyas fejvadászt. Kötetünk az eredeti regényt és az irodalmi forgatókönyvet egyaránt tartalmazza, valódi csemegével szolgálva mind az irodalom, mind a film szerelmeseinek.
William S. Burroughs - The Job
William Burroughs' work was dedicated to an assault upon language, traditional values and all agents of control. Produced at a time when he was at his most extreme and messianic, "The Job" lays out his abrasive, incisive, paranoiac, maddened and maddening worldview in interviews interspersed with stories and other writing. On the Beat movement, the importance of the cut-up technique, the press, Scientology, capital punishment, drugs, good and evil, the destruction of nations, Deadly Orgone Radiation and whether violence just in words is violence enough - Burroughs' insights show why he was one of the most influential writers and one of the sharpest, most startling and strangest minds of his generation.
William S. Burroughs - Electronic Revolution
A newly issued and reformatted, beautifully designed larger version of this bilingual German/English work, published in Germany by Pociao's Expanded Media Editions, featuring a photo of the author by Brion Gysin. "I have described here a number of weapons and tactics in the war game. Weapons that change consciousness could call the war game in question. All games are hostile. Basically there is only one game from here to eternity. . . ". William S. Burroughs
William S. Burroughs - Tornado Alley
Tornado Alley is a collection of short stories and one poem by Beat Generation author William S. Burroughs, written during the later years of his career and first published in 1989. The first edition of the book included illustrations by S. Clay Wilson.
William S. Burroughs - Naked Scientology / Ali's Smile
Nonfiction. NAKED SCIENTOLOGY contains articles and letters by Burroughs critiquing Scientology, a religion with which he was involved for some time and toward which he maintains a reserved curiosity. According to Burroughs, some of the techniques are highly valuable and warrant further study and experimentation, while on the other hand he is in flat disagreement with the organizational policy. ALI'S SMILE is a hallucinatory dream-tale that loosely takes as its subject the negative effects of Scientology. Bilingual, in English and German.
William S. Burroughs - Burroughs Live
Burroughs Live gathers all the interviews, both published and unpublished, given by William Burroughs, as well as conversations with well-known writers, artists, and musicians such as Tenessee Williams, Timothy Leary, Patti Smith, Keith Richards, Allen Ginsberg, Brion Gysin, and Gregory Corso. The book provides a fascinating account of Burroughs's life as a literary outlaw. Illuminating many aspects of his work and many facets of his mind, it brings out his scathing humor, powerful intelligence, and nightmarish vision.
William S. Burroughs - Dead Fingers Talk
Dead Fingers Talk, first published in 1963, was the fifth novel published by Beat Generation author William S. Burroughs. The book was originally published by John Calder in association with Olympia Press. The book combines sections from Burroughs' earlier novels, Naked Lunch, The Soft Machine and The Ticket That Exploded, in an attempt to create a new narrative. It is sometimes referred to as a compilation, but this is technically incorrect. Its plot cannot be easily described, although it can be said focuses upon conspiracy and the hero getting away from the police. Although the publisher John Calder claimed that it contained previously unpublished material, this extra text has never been identified. Dead Fingers Talk, like many of Burroughs' works, was controversial upon its release. It was the subject of a scathing review in the Times Literary Supplement that resulted in a war of words between supporters and detractors of the novel (and Burroughs in general) that played out in the magazine's letters page for months. The book itself is considered one of the rarer of Burroughs' novels, and despite some reprints in the 1970s, has otherwise been out of print for years.
William S. Burroughs - The Finger
'He felt a sudden deep pity for the finger joint that lay there on the dresser, a few drops of blood gathering around the white bone.' A deliberately severed finger, a junky's Christmas miracle and a Tangier con-artist, among others, feature in these hallucinogenic sketches and stories from the infamous Beat legend. Penguin Modern: fifty new books celebrating the pioneering spirit of the iconic Penguin Modern Classics series, with each one offering a concentrated hit of its contemporary, international flavour. Here are authors ranging from Kathy Acker to James Baldwin, Truman Capote to Stanislaw Lem and George Orwell to Shirley Jackson; essays radical and inspiring; poems moving and disturbing; stories surreal and fabulous; taking us from the deep South to modern Japan, New York's underground scene to the farthest reaches of outer space.
William S. Burroughs - William S. Burroughs' The Revised Boy Scout Manual
Before the era of fake news and anti-fascists, William S. Burroughs wrote about preparing for revolution and confronting institutionalized power. In this work, Burroughs’ parody becomes a set of rationales and instructions for destabilizing the state and overthrowing an oppressive and corrupt government. As with much of Burroughs’ work, it is hard to say if it is serious or purely satire. The work is funny, horrifying, and eerily prescient, especially concerning the use of language and social media to undermine institutions. The Revised Boy Scout Manual was a work Burroughs revisited many times, but which has never before been published in its complete form. Based primarily on recordings of a performance of the complete piece found in the archives at the OSU libraries, as well as various incomplete versions of the typescript found at Arizona State University and the New York Public Library archives, this lost masterpiece of satiric subversion is finally available in its entirety.
William S. Burroughs - Everything Lost
In late summer 1953, as he returned to Mexico City after a seven-month expedition through the jungles of Ecuador, Colombia, and Peru, William Burroughs began a notebook of final reflections on his four years in Latin America. His first novel, "Junkie, "had just been published and he would soon be back in New York to meet Allen Ginsberg and together complete the manuscripts of what became "The Yage Letters" and "Queer. "Yet this notebook, the sole survivor from that period, reveals Burroughs not as a writer on the verge of success, but as a man staring down personal catastrophe and visions of looming cultural disaster.Losses that will not let go of him haunt Burroughs throughout the notebook: Bits of it keep floating back to me like memories of a daytime nightmare. However, out of these dark reflections we see emerge vivid fragments of Burroughs fiction and, even more tellingly, unique, primary evidence for the remarkable ways in which his early manuscripts evolved. Assembled in facsimile and transcribed by Geoffrey D. Smith, John M. Bennett, and Burroughs scholar Oliver Harris, the notebook forces us to change the way we see both Burroughs and his writing at a turning point in his literary biography."
William S. Burroughs - El almuerzo desnudo
El almuerzo desnudo, una de las novelas más míticas de la literatura norteamericana, es un descenso a los infiernos de la droga y una denuncia horrorizada y sardónica, onírica y alucinatoria de la sociedad actual, un mundo sin esperanza ni futuro. Burroughs dispara sus flechas contra las religiones, el ejército, la universidad, la sexualidad, la justicia corrupta, los traficantes tramposos, el colonialismo, la burocracia y la psiquiatría representada por el siniestro Dr. Benway, el gran manipulador de conciencias, el experto en Control total.
William S. Burroughs - Last Words
Laid out as diary entries of the last nine months of Burroughs's life, "Last Words" spans the realms of cultural criticism, personal memoir, and fiction. Classic Burroughs concerns--literature, U.S. drug policy, the state of humanity, his love for his cats--permeate this poignant portrait of the man, his life, and the creative process.
William S. Burroughs - The Ticket That Exploded: The Restored Text
An outrageous hybrid of pulp science fiction, obscene experimental poetry, and manifesto for revolution, The Ticket That Exploded is a last chance antidote to the virus of lies spread by the ad men and con men of the Nova Mob, a call to arms against those driving our planet toward the point of destruction. Like the other two volumes of Burroughs' Cut-Up Trilogy, The Soft Machine and Nova Express, it is today as fresh in its form and as urgent in its message as it has ever been. Edited and introduced by renowned Burroughs scholar Oliver Harris, this new edition reveals how the book's cultural reach has expanded with the viral logic of Burroughs' multi-media creative methods.
William S. Burroughs - Letters 1945-59
Beginning as surprisingly formal notes from the road to his friends Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, the letters gradually deepen in substance and style. Burroughs' letters show the development of both the man and the writer, vividly documenting his (often turbulent) personal and cultural history. The collection provides a key to opening up and contextualizing Burroughs' fiction, but more than that it shows how letter-writing was itself integral to his life and creative process.
William S. Burroughs - Malcolm McNeill - The Lost Art of Ah Pook is Here
In 1970, William S. Burroughs and artist Malcolm McNeill began a small collaborative project on a comic entitled The Unspeakable Mr. Hart, which appeared in the first four issues of Cyclops, England's first comics magazine for an adult readership. Soon after, Burroughs and McNeill agreed to collaborate on a book-length meditation on time, power, and control, and corruption that evoked the Mayan codices and specifically, the Mayan god of death, Ah Pook. Ah Pook is Here was to include their character Mr. Hart, but stray from the conventional comics form to explore different juxtapositions of images and words.Ah Pook was never finished in its intended form. In a 1979 prose collection that included only the words from the collaboration, Ah Pook is Here and Other Texts (Calder, 1979), Burroughs explains in the preface that they envisioned the work to be `one that falls into neither the category of the conventional illustrated book nor that of a comix publication.` Rather, the work was to include `about a hundred pages of artwork with text (thirty in full-color) and about fifty pages of text alone.` The book was conceived as a single painting in which text and images were combined in whatever form seemed appropriate to the narrative. It was conceived as 120 continuous pages that would 'fold out.' Such a book was, at the time, unprecedented, and no publisher was willing to take a chance and publish a `graphic novel.`However, Malcolm McNeill created nearly a hundred paintings, illustrations, and sketches for the book, and these, finally, are seeing the light of day in The Lost Art of Ah Pook. (Burroughs' text will not be included.) McNeill himself is an exemplary craftsman and visionary painter whose images have languished for over 30 years, unseen. Even in a context divorced from the words, they represent a stunning precursor to the graphic novel form to come. Sara J. Van Ness contributes an historical essay chronicling the long history of Burroughs' and McNeill's work together, including its incomplete publishing history with Rolling Stone's Straight Arrow Press, the excerpt that ran in Rush magazine, and the text that was published without pictures.
Jack Kerouac - William S. Burroughs - És megfőttek a vízilovak
1944-ben döbbenetes gyilkosság rázta meg a baráti társaságot, amelyből aztán a beatnemzedék legnagyobb írói kinőttek. A történet és a véres végkifejlet – a bonyolult kapcsolat, mely egy szép, tehetséges, szexuális identitását még csak kereső fiú és középkorú, őrülten szerelmes mentora, gyámja és zaklatója között kialakult – nemcsak az újságok számára volt szenzáció, hanem írók egész sorát igézte meg. Az akkor huszonkét éves Jack Kerouac és a harmincéves William S. Burroughs – még mindkettő ismeretlen, sehol sem publikáló író – közösen megírta a maga változatát, mely nemcsak a bűnügy sztorija, hanem a későbbi beat spontán, szikár stílusában varázsolja elénk New York hangulatát a háború utolsó éveiben – és annak az elveszett nemzedéknek az útkeresését, amely Amerika addigi értékrendjét sok szempontból felrúgva, sőt dühösen elátkozva, az életben és a művészetben is egyre új kalandokra vágyott. A kisregényt sokáig csak mint legendát – mint Kerouac és Burroughs korai, elveszett közös művét – tartották számon a beatirodalom rajongói. De a mű nem veszett el, csak évtizedekig meglapult egy dobozban, mert főhőse, a két író fiatalkori barátja, aki a gyilkosság miatti büntetését letöltve neves újságíró lett, nem járult hozzá a megjelentetéséhez. Végül csak az ő halála után, 2008-ban látott napvilágot a könyv: „a gyilkosság története, amely megszülte a beatnemzedéket”.
William S. Burroughs - Ah Pook Is Here and Other Texts
Ah Pook Is Here was a collaboration between author William S. Burroughs and artist Malcolm Mc Neill. It began in 1970, when Burroughs was living in London and Mc Neill was in his final year of art school. It first appeared under the title The Unspeakable Mr. Hart as a comic strip in the English Cyclops. When that magazine ceased publication, Burroughs and Mc Neill decided to develop the concept as a book. After a year of research and preliminary design the text of the book had expanded from 11 pages to 50, and a complete mockup had been produced. By this point, the work had been renamed Ah Puch Is Here in reference to the Mayan Death God. Straight Arrow Books in San Francisco agreed to publish the proposed work in 1971 as a "Word/Image novel" which was to comprise 120 pages, some of integrated text and image, some of text alone and some which featured only pictures. In 1973, Mc Neill moved to San Francisco from London to finish the project. However, the small advance proffered by the publisher made any more than a few months of working full-time on the project impossible, and when Straight Arrow closed in 1974 the book was without a publisher. Nevertheless, Mc Neill moved to New York in 1975 to rejoin Burroughs and continue the work. They were unable to find another publisher and after seven years on and off, the project was finally abandoned. It was subsequently published in 1979 (by John Calder and Viking Penguin) in text form only under the original title of Ah Pook Is Here.
William S. Burroughs - Brion Gysin - The Third Mind
The Third Mind is a book by Beat Generation novelist William S. Burroughs and artist/poet/novelist Brion Gysin. First published in a French-language edition in 1977, it was published in English in 1978. It contains numerous short fiction pieces as well as poetry by Gysin, and an interview with Burroughs. Some chapters had previously been published in various literary journals between 1960 and 1973.
William S. Burroughs - Naked Lunch
Naked Lunch is the unnerving tale of a monumental descent into the hellish world of a narcotics addict as he travels from New York to Tangiers, then into Interzone, a nightmarish modern urban wasteland in which the forces of good and evil vie for control of the individual and all of humanity. By mixing the fantastic and the realistic with his own unmistakable vision and voice, Burroughs has created a unique masterpiece that is a classic of twentieth century fiction.
