Read full description of the books Retaking the Universe: William S. Burroughs in the Age of Globalization:A brilliantly insightful and revealing collection of essays by a host of contemporary academics on the works and thought of the late William S. Burroughs. Of particular interest in this collection are the essays that reposition Burroughs' insights into the notion of the control society, which Burroughs envisioned decades earlier in novels like Naked Lunch and the Soft Machine. Given the relevance of these issues for the individual in the 21st century, it seems that a second, closer reading of Burroughs' works is just the purgative that our shallow consumer culture needs in order to gain a fresh reassessment of the way things really are and where the appear to be heading.
