Place of Dead Roads
|Author:||William S Burroughs|
'You're destroying the universe!'
In America's Old West, the outlaw Kim Carsons - expert gunslinger, lover of the occult and the extreme - recruits a brazen band of marauding outlaws, the Wild Fruits, to battle the forces of morality and mind control. A wildly comic and grotesque satire that moves across time and space through an ever-shifting world of clones and cowboys, The Place of Dead Roads is the second book in William Burroughs' trilogy that begins with Cities of the Red Night and concludes with The Western Lands.
'A comedy and a nightmare of Bosch-like visions, extraordinarily precise vivid visualisations, outrageous ideas like mind bombs.' Allen Ginsberg
