The Wild Boys by William S. Burroughs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Yet another Burroughs novel of drugs, poisonous insects, gay sex, weird weapons, weirder cults, and thumbing his nose at authority. This one has more plot than most but does slip into his trademark "cut up" method at times. I find that the cut up sections actually add to the atmosphere of the book.
Burroughs fans will be on familiar territory here. I've read a lot of his books and while his work gets repetitive after a while, I seem to find myself reading a new one every year or so. Can't get his guy out of my system! Those new to Burroughs should read Junky first, Naked Lunch second, and then see if they want to go for a third.
