9780330305112: The Western Lands (Picador Books) (English and Spanish Edition)

The Western Land is legendary Beat writer William S. Burrough’s profound, revealing, and often astonishing meditation on morality, loneliness, life, and death -- a Book of the Dead for the nuclear age. 

"Burrough's visionary power, his comic genius, and his unerring ability to crack the codes that make up the life of this century are undimished." -- J.G. Ballard, Washington Post Book World

About the Author:

William S. Burroughs (1914-1997)—guru of the Beat Generation, controversial éminence grise of the international avant-garde, dark prophet, and blackest of black humor satirists—had a range of influence rivaled by few post-World War II writers. His many books include Naked Lunch, Queer, Exterminator!, The Cat Inside, The Western Lands, and Interzone.

Review:

''The trilogy . . . is completed here, and the result is a divine comedy . . . . A significant work on its own merits. . . Burroughs speaks more directly than usual, sometimes in the guise of old, forgotten novelist William Seward Hall, sometimes forthrightly and freely in his authorial voice. As a result, Burroughs fans will find this narrative vivid, horrifying, beautiful, and sad.'' --Publishers Weekly

''The title refers to the place in ancient Egyptian mythology where souls journeyed in search of immortality. Characters from Burroughs' earlier works reappear; the dreamlike prose stylistically a mixture of straight-forward and surrealistic narrative . . . as Burroughs explores such themes as addiction, mortality, the survival of the species, and the quest for eternal life. Essential for all serious literature collections.'' --Library Journal

''A remarkable piece of sustained narrative invention, a comic meditation on death in the guise of a novel.'' --New York Times Book Review
