Set in Mexico City during the early 50s, Queer follows William Lee's hopeless pursuit of desire from bar to bar in the American expatriate scene. As Lee breaks down, the trademark Burroughsian voice emerges; a maniacal mix of self-lacerating humor and the Ugly American at his ugliest. Burroughs' only realist love story, Queer is a haunting tale of possession and exorcism.
"Burroughs is the greatest satirical writer since Jonathan Swift" (Jack Kerouac)
"A roller-coaster ride through hell, a safari to the strangest people of the strangest planet - ourselves... sit back and gorge yourself on this feast of a novel." (J. G. Ballard on Naked Lunch)
