Burroughs' letters reveal his desire to escape the norms of American society which hemmed him in, and the extraordinary steps he took to break free.

Lyrical passages by Allen Ginsberg
The opening editor’s introduction is dry & academic, relating the history of this manuscript. I listened to the whole thing but it’s only for literary nerds. Feel free to skip it. The performances are a cut above, Luis Moreno & Mark Nelson both outstanding. And the Allen Ginsberg passages are lyrical spiritual passages about ineffable ayahuasca journeys, which are experiences that primarily occur outside of the realm of language. Which make Allen Ginsberg’s poetry all the more affecting.

Narrator sounds nothing like Burroughs
I have been listening to all of the Burroughs book on audible and this narrator sounds nothing like Burroughs. All of the other books had someone who at least sounded a little bit like Burroughs. They really need to remake this book with a proper narrator.
