if it's barry miles, that's ok

Posted to What Are You Reading?

I'm glad to hear it's Miles who's involved. That's means it'll have some integrity -- he was a good friend of Burroughs and does good stuff.

I wonder if it's some kind of unearthing of the original manuscripts from which Naked Lunch was extracted. The story is that Kerouac and Ginsberg and the others all hung around Burroughs place in Tangier and helped him decide how to turn his various writings into a book. Maybe the new book includes some stuff that they didn't include.
