"A sermon blast of language. . . . Burroughs is the Martin Luther of hipsterism, welding his decree on the silicon doors of the solar system."--"Newsweek" "Hypnotic . . . outrageous. [Burroughs] can think of the wildest parodies of erotic exuberance and invent the weirdest places for demonstrating them." --"Harper's" "Burroughs is first and foremost a poet. His attunement to contemporary language is probably unequalled in American writing. Anyone with a feeling for English phrase at its most balanced, concise, and arresting, cannot fail to see this excellence."--Terry Southern "Burroughs writes with a beauty and efficiency unmatched by any living writer."--"Chicago Sun-Times" "Macabre, funny, reverberant, grotesque."--"The New York Review of Books"
