Beginning early in his career with JUNKY, QUEER, and a novel on which he collaborated with Jack Kerouac, WORD VIRUS follows major themes in Burroughs' oeuvre through NAKED LUNCH and the Cut-Up novles to CITIES OF THE RED NIGHT and THE CAT INSIDE. Beautifully edited and complemented by James Grauerholz's illuminating biographical essays, WORD VIRUS places the work in context of the life. It is an excellent tool for the scholar and a delight for the general reader.
