'A whirlwind valedictory of Burroughs' own unconscious. An intensely personal book' The New York Times Book Review
In My Education, William Burroughs – possessor of one of the sharpest, strangest minds in all of fiction, the writer of visceral, nightmarish prose – gives an autobiography of his singular subconscious. In dreams he travels to the Land of the Dead, mourns and resurrects lost friends, is sentenced to be hanged and walks on water – he dreams of drugs, and sex, and travelling, while places and creatures move both between his books and his sleep.
Exploring and embodying Burroughs' provocative ideas on writing, painting, consciousness and creativity, My Education is intense, vivid, wry and laconic – and a revealing journey into the mind of a great writer.
