Publisher's Summary

Set in Mexico City during the early 50s, Queer follows William Lee's hopeless pursuit of desire from bar to bar in the American expatriate scene. As Lee breaks down, the trademark Burroughsian voice emerges; a maniacal mix of self-lacerating humor and the Ugly American at his ugliest. Burroughs' only realist love story, Queer is a haunting tale of possession and exorcism.

What the Critics Say

"Burroughs is the greatest satirical writer since Jonathan Swift" (Jack Kerouac)

"A roller-coaster ride through hell, a safari to the strangest people of the strangest planet - ourselves... sit back and gorge yourself on this feast of a novel." (J. G. Ballard on Naked Lunch)

    "Not for the faint of heart..."
    If you could sum up Queer in three words, what would they be?

    This was intended to be JUNKY part 2 and reads as such - having many of the characteristics of NAKED LUNCH - and this is what you want Burroughs in unapologetic full flow. Tasty for those who like their flavors weird and strong.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Burroughs being Burroughs - what else could you want?


    Have you listened to any of T. Ryder Smith and Andrew Garman ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    This couldn't have been easy to read aloud and keep a straight (lol) face...couldn't have been read on an empty stomach.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It is a book of moments that make you squirm, laugh and wince.
