Description:

Call Me Burroughs
Barry Miles and Anne Waldman

In conversation with David. L. Ulin, Los Angeles Times Book Critic

William Burroughs was the original cult figure of the Beat Movement, author of Naked Lunch, and influence to scores of artists, writers, and musicians. For the centennial celebration of Burroughs’ birth, beat historian and biographer Barry Miles discusses the long-term cultural legacy of Burroughs and his literary risk-taking alongside poet Anne Waldman— close friend of Burroughs and his colleague at the Jack Kerouac School for Disembodied Poetics.
