Abstract:
The bibliography of William S. Burroughs is as challenging as the man was himself. He wrote voluminously and kaleidoscopically. He rearranged, recycled, and reiterated obsessively. He produced across five decades and four continents. He was a novelist, a poet, an essayist, and a correspondent at home in all media. He never met a "little magazine" or an interviewer he wouldn’t share with.
