Introduction by James Grauerholz.
'Demonstrates the birth of a writer: the door cracking open, the eye flashing, risking its every breath to see' San Francisco Chronicle
Interzone shows the evolution of William Burroughs from the terse, fiercely confessional writer of Junky to the wild, brutal fantasist of Naked Lunch. In writings on severing the last joint of a little finger (as Burroughs did his own), on life in Tangiers, on legs found in a suitcase and a Christmas miracle for a junky, on a cruel futuristic city of rusted metal, on the abuses of drugs and of sex, from his very first attempt at fiction to the frenzied, obscene 'WORD', Burroughs finds his unmistakable, inimitable voice here.
