Turn The Page: William S Burroughs
I wanted to celebrate the books which I have in my William Burroughs collection so I found this site and hunted down all the covers of the books I actually own. Someone on a forum recently asked who rewired my head and the guy who did it first and keeps doing it was Burroughs. A lot of my other literary heroes were inspired by him as well. It would be hard to overestimate the first time I read him and the impact it had on me — a new way to write — a challenge thrown down which you have to ask, how many people took it up? There was always something egoless about Burroughs experimentation; something still fresh. I think it is true of the other two members of the holy trinity of the beat movement too — Kerouac and Ginsberg. Burroughs seems even less bound by time and space than they were though.
