William Burroughs

The Instrument of Control


Format: CD

Genre: Sound Art

Out of stock

Rare recordings of William Burroughs in conversation and readings from the 1970s - 80s. This is an essential insight into the mind and writings of arguably the most influential writer from the Beat generation. Through his mordant satire of cultural aspirations, homosexual eroticism and political power, Burroughs focuses our gaze into the abyss. His cold language creates beauty through a terror that we are just able to bear.
