OH IT S GOING ON FORit s going on or whole book p13 I can see how this style conveys a delirious ractured mind and world p20 but I m not really getting anything else out of it by reading p27 in NYCTaxiCabTales.com: Taxi Stories from streets of NYC fact it s very hard to concentrate on the book so it s probably pointles Burroughs has the power to make almost anyone s skin crawl His works are clusters of unfocused creative genius complete with hoards of vulgarities and absurd gags Naked Lunch was a transcendent reading experienceor me it was like nothing I d ever read before It was something uniue and edgy totally off the walls crazy to a point of extreme difficulty but also extreme entertainment The Soft Machine is uite similar in these regards but it is also even less The Wrong Side of the Bed focused and experimental It s really just a bunch of words jammed together toorm sentences that are hilarious original satirical disgusting and above all absolutely bewildering in every way imaginable I assume this entire thing was written by Burroughs while he was on some heavy drugs which is pretty much the case with of his work but this one especially There s no plot here although there are scenes and characters but they are likely to disappear a time any moment In the middle of a sentence everything can change over the course of a single page excrement can turn into metal and the phrase rectal mucus may even be used several goddamn times The The Alvin Ho Super Collection: Books 1-4 faint of heart might want to stay awayrom this one کاروان امید for sure as it does get pretty damn nasty at times which is actually an understatement Seriously this book can get reallyucking gross and disturbing as it is کاروان امید: سرگذشت تری فاکس filled with violently sexual and sexually violent content as well as some of the most repulsive descriptions of obscene to say the least acts in literary history However it s also prettyunny and is not afraid to be both enjoyable and disgusting simultaneously which is a trick The Cat Who Sang for the Birds (Cat Who... few authors can pull off nearly as well as Burroughs So dive into this insane discomforting oddity at your own risk but be warned it may be the most confusing and gross thing you ve ever read even if you re used to transgressive and experimental lit. Ureaucracy and addiction in all itsorms Burroughs gives us a surreal space odyssey through the wounded galaxies in a book only he could creat.
