Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The true travelers of the Beat Generation were not Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady but Burroughs and Ginsberg - they traveled the world looking for answers, drugs, a way out of their lives and their pasts - I think this is a poetic and satirical gem. Burroughs accidental shooting of his wife haunts him and he is looking for an answer to a question he can hardly form - Ginsberg letters in response are wild, frightened, an explorer who seems to be terrified by every step - electric poetry.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
his has to be a complete in inane question to any question about any book - if I changed it it wouldn't be this book - and you can't change this book without making it so much less than it is...even if you improved it.
Did The Yage Letters inspire you to do anything?
I have been inspired to travel to South America, take a truly spectacular amount of drugs, sleep with many and varied species whilst writing letters home to tell them just how irresponsible I'm being.
