[the Restored Text]Audiobook CD - 2009
An unnerving tale of a narcotics addict unmoored in New York, Tangiers, and-- ultimately-- a nightmarish wasteland known as Interzone, its formal innovation, formerly taboo subject matter, and tour de force execution have exerted their influence on the work of authors like Thomas Pynchon, J.G. Ballard, and William Gibson; on the relationship between art and obscenity; and on the shape of music, film, and media generally. This restored text includes editorial corrections to errors present in previous editions, and incorporates Burroughs' notes on the text, several essays he wrote about the book, an appendix of new material, and alternate drafts of the original manuscript.
