Book Condition: New - New



The definitive 25th-anniversay edition of Burroughs's legendary second novel.
Originally written in 1952 but not published till 1985, "Queer" is an enigma-both an unflinching autobiographical self-portrait and a coruscatingly political novel, Burroughs' only realist love story and a montage of comic-grotesque fantasies that paved the way for his masterpiece, "Naked Lunch." Set in Mexico City during the early fifties, "Queer" follows William Lee's hopeless pursuit of desire from bar to bar in the American expatriate scene. As Lee breaks down, the trademark Burroughsian voice emerges, a maniacal mix of self- lacerating humor and the ugly American at his ugliest.
A haunting tale of possession and exorcism, "Queer" is also a novel with a history of secrets, as this new edition reveals.
