CONVERSATIONS WITH WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS.
Edition: First printing, a trade paperback, issued simultaneously with hardcover.
Jackson, MS: University Press of Mississippi, (1999). First edition - A collection of 22 interviews spanning 35 years. "They range from a playful piece by Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso, first published in the Journal for the Protection of All Beings (1961), to 'Grandpa from Hell,' an interview that appeared in the L.A. Weekly in 1996. Sources for the interviews include Esquire, Penthouse, and Rolling Stone as well as scholarly journals like Modern Language Studies--a diversity that reflects Burroughs's status as both a serious literary figure and a popular icon." Among the interviewers are Edmund White, Graham Masterton and Larry McCaffrey. Chronology, index. xxii, 234 pp. ISBN: 1-578061830.
