'Do you take your dish of tea with lemon, or with venom, my dear' was Brion Gysin's reaction to the very mixed reviews that met the John Calder published UK edition of 'Dead Fingers Talk', (1963), when Burroughs was still in London. Gysin feeding the police state paranoia that pre-occupies the writer in this collection of works by Burroughs.
Its not his best work, but even average Burroughs is above others best ,so do not be afraid to enter his world.
It covers his usual themes of outsider society, drug fuelled hallucinatory paranoia, great jokes, obscenity and the odd, indeed perverse routines, that he's well known for
writing. Thers's enough counter culture here to still un-nerve most conservatives and to satisfy the radicals. So, all-in-all, 'a light summer read for most tastes to enjoy'',ha ha .
