Burroughs, William S(eward)
(b. Feb. 5, 1914, St. Louis, Mo., U.S.), American writer of experimental novels that evoke, in deliberately erratic prose, a nightmarish, sometimes wildly humorous world. His sexual explicitness (he was an avid, outspoken homosexual) and the frankness with which he dealt with his own experiences as a drug addict won him a following among writers of the Beat movement q.v. Burroughs was the grandson of the inventor of the Burroughs adding machine and grew up in St. Louis in comfortable circumstances, graduating from Harvard University in 1936 and continuing study there in archaeology and ethnology. Having tired of the academic world, he then held a variety of jobs. He served for a while with the U.S. Army during World War II. Becoming addicted to drugsnotably heroinin New York City in 1944, he moved with his second wife to Mexico, where in 1951 he shot and killed her in a tragic accident. Fleeing Mexico, he wandered through the Amazon region of South America, continuing his experiments with drugs, a period of his life detailed in The Yage Letters

10. Naked Lunch: The Film
A review of the film by David Cronenberg.
Naked Lunch: The Film
There is a common misconception that this is based on the William S. Burroughs novel of the same name. Actually it's a semi-fantasy based on Burroughs' life during the period that he was writing this novel, but not on the novel itself . Peter Weller (who is good at playing robotic characters; he was RoboCop) plays a character named Will Lee, who represents Burroughs (Lee is Burroughs' mother's maiden name, and he used this pseudonym when ' Junky ' was published). Now that that's been cleared up: I liked this film very much. David Cronenberg directed it, and he was the one who did that incredible remake of 'The Fly' with Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. I didn't think 'Naked Lunch' delivered as much as 'The Fly,' but I admire Cronenberg more than ever for making this challenging and uncommercial film, and I found certain images in it brilliant. There's the running bit, for instance, about typewriters coming to life as weird orgasmic insect-creatures who get sexually aroused when written well on. Will Lee and the character representing Paul Bowles are very possessive about their respective typewriters. Lee uses a Clark-Nova, Bowles uses a Martinelli, and one day Lee's Clark-Nova violently dismembers Bowles' Martinelli in a fit of jealousy. Bowles then claims Burroughs' Clark-Nova as his own, and when the Clark-Nova tries to run away it slams into a closed door with the sound of a carriage bar ringing.

In Naked Lunch, William S. Burroughs revealed his genius. In The Soft Machine he begins an adventure that will take us even further into the dark recesses of his imagination, a region where nothing is sacred, nothing taboo. Continuing his ferocious verbal assault on hatred, hype, poverty, war, bureaucracy, and addiction in all its forms, Burroughs gives us a surreal space odyssey through the wounded galaxies in a book only he could create.

William S. Burroughs Dies at 83; Member of the Beat Generation Wrote 'Naked Lunch'
By RICHARD SEVERO illiam S. Burroughs, a renegade writer of the Beat Generation who stunned readers and inspired adoring cultists with his 1959 book "Naked Lunch," died yesterday afternoon at Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Lawrence, Kan. He was 83. The cause of his death, at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, was a heart attack that he suffered on Friday, his publicist, Ira Silverberg, said. Over the years, Mr. Burroughs had lived in such places as New York, London, Paris, Mexico City and Tangier. But since 1981 he maintained a house in Lawrence, where he lived simply with three cats and indulged his interests in painting and photography and in collecting and discharging firearms. Mr. Burroughs had undergone triple bypass surgery in 1991. He quit smoking after the operation. And though he continued to suffer from a leaky heart valve, from all reports, he regained robust health quickly for a man of his years. His recovery was all the more noteworthy since he had spent so many of his younger days engulfed in narcotics addiction, an imperative so demanding that in 1954, while living in London, he sold his typewriter to buy heroin, although he kept working in longhand. He spent years experimenting with drugs as well as with sex, which he engaged in with men, women and children.

BURROUGHS, William S Naked Lunch NY, Grove Press, (1959)[c. 1962]. The first American edition and the first hardcover edition: Naked Lunch was not published in this country until three years after its original publication in Paris. It was published by the maverick publisher Barney Rosset, of Grove Press, in a tiny edition of 3500 copies a smaller number than was done of the scarce French paperback edition in 1959. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a short tear at the lower edge of the front panel and a bit of rubbing on the rear spine fold. Together with an advance reading excerpt: eight pages from the novel and two reviews, one by Terry Southern. With additional blurbs by Norman Mailer, Jack Kerouac, Robert Lowell and John Ciardi. Fine in stapled wrappers. An important promotional piece, in that Burroughs' novel was subjected to censorship prior to its U.S. publication, and the endorsements of such established literary celebrities as the above helped pave the way for its publication here by establishing it as a novel of literary merit. A beautiful copy of a landmark book, together with an uncommon, important ephemeral piece. All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.

Audio Interviews with William Burroughs
William Burroughs, author of Queer, Junkie Naked Lunch Cities of the Red Night , joins Don Swaim in this 1984 interview on his 70th birthday. He talks about how he inherited his wealth and how it was the weekly allowance he received from his parents that financed his drug addiction to morphine. His stint outside of the United States (from the 40s to about the 60s) was mainly because of his addiction. Buying morphine in Tangier (a city in Morocco) is legal. Despite his vise, he could still write well under the influence. Burroughs finally became sober in 1957 and at the time of the interview, only drank alcohol and smoked cigarettes.

Burroughs, William S. (1914-1997) In his novels as in his life, William S. Burroughs was an outlaw and a provocateur. Beginning with Naked Lunch (1959), his fiction was distinguished by violently hallucinatory images, rendered in prose that brilliantly mimics the speech of criminals, redneck sheriffs, bureaucrats, political extremists, and hipsters. A series of later writings applied collage techniques to the novel form. Burroughs always incorporated transgressive sexual imagery and situations into his writing. In this, he went far beyond the acknowledgment, in the 1950s, of his own homosexuality. His novels contain representations of such practices as autoerotic asphyxiation and sadomasochism. Primarily a satirist, Burroughs treated both sexuality and language as manifestations of social powerand as sites of conflict. Sponsor Message.
