A wildly comic and grotesque satire that moves across time and space through an ever-shifting world of clones and cowboys, The Place of Dead Roads is the second book in William Burroughs' trilogy that begins with Cities of the Red Night and concludes withThe Western Lands.
William S. Burroughs was born in 1914 in St Louis. By the time of his death he was widely recognised as one of the most politically trenchant, culturally influential, and innovative artists of the twentieth century. His numerous books include Naked Lunch, Junky, Queer, Nova Express, Interzone, The Wild Boys, The Ticket That Exploded and The Soft Machine. After living in Mexico City, Tangier, Paris, and London, Burroughs finally returned to America in 1974.
