Details

[Edit]

The Best of William S. Burroughs is a four-disc box set that contains several readings from Burroughs' most famous works, including excerpts from Naked Lunch. Burroughs' raspy, crackled voice was ideally suited to his surreal cut-and-paste narratives, and while it may be better to read his actual prose, this is an ideal spoken-word collection of his works.
