About the Author
Jack Black was a hobo and author of the 1926 memoir You Can't Win, which has been cited as a major influence on William Burroughs and the Beat generation.
Joe Coleman is a world-renowned painter, writer, and performer who has exhibited for five decades in major museums throughout the world including one-man exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, the Barbican Centre in London, and Tilton Gallery and Dickinson Gallery in New York. His collectors have included Iggy Pop, Jim Jarmusch, Anthony Bourdain, Leonardo DiCaprio, and H.R. Giger. He was the subject of an award-winning feature length documentary, Rest in Pieces: A Portrait of Joe Coleman (1997) and lives with his wife Whitney Ward in Brooklyn and upstate New York.
William S. Burroughs' writing career spanned both decades and continents. Best known for his cut ups and for Naked Lunch (made into a major motion picture directed by David Cronenberg), with the help of Allen Ginsberg, his short routines (short narrative vignettes) became novels.
