Burroughs - less a biography than a chronology of the Burroughs phenomenon, an examination of the myth behind the man. Filled with 150 color photos - many of them never seen before - and new biographical material, Gentleman Junkie shows how Burroughss fascinating life, from Harvard to Greenwich Village to Tangiers, was matched only by his enormous impact on modern literature and pop culture. Dapper radical, literary experimentalist, and mentor to countless artists, Burroughs had an indelible influence on American life in the twentieth century.
