Description

A long anticipated collection of over 300 of Burroughs's letters from the early '60s through the mid '70s, written to such recipients as Allen Ginsberg, Paul Bowles, and the surrealist artist Brion Gysin, these letters shed remarkable light on the writer's artistic process and literary experimentation, as well as his complex personal life, in this formative period. An intimate glimpse into the private life of an often misunderstood artist, Rub Out the Words is also an indelible portrait of one of the twentieth century's most uncompromising literary figures.
