In 1960, in a letter to Allen Ginsberg, Norman Mailer described William Burroughs (1914–1997) as 'the only American novelist living today who may conceivably be possessed by genius'. Barry Miles presents a wonderfully detailed account of Burroughs's life, from his origins in St Louis, Harvard in the 1930s and the beginnings of the Beat movement in 1940s New York, through sojourns in Mexico City, Peru, Tangier and London, to the writer's return to Kansas in his final years.
