William Burroughs - Queer

William Burroughs – Queer

 

Despite the negative connotations of the title, Queer is by no means homophobic – if anything, it’s a celebration of Burroughs’ sexuality. It’s effectively an extension of Junkie, another of Burroughs’ celebrated dystopian novels, written in the third person instead of in the first.

I actually enjoyed Queer more than the majority of Burroughs’ other work, and it’s certainly better than Naked Lunch in my opinion – it’s a good work to start with, and it’s slightly more lucid than a good deal of his most celebrated literature. If this is the first Burroughs book that you ever read, you won’t be scared away by his incoherence.
