William S. Burroughs
New York: Grove Press, 1959.
First state jacket, with very slight loss to spine top, with author photo, no zip code to publisher address and original $6.00 price. A tight, unfaded copy.
Heralded as a masterpiece, the book broke new ground in the development of experimental prose writing, presenting drug-fueled visions in a paranoid, stream-of-consciousness manner.
One of the indisputable classics of postwar literature.
