I am extremely ambivalent about Burroughs. A genius of course, but you can't get away from the misogyny. Whatever else The Wild Boys is, it's Kill All the Girls/Kill All the Boys With Girl Cooties on a scale far beyond the Halloween movies. Maybe he's like Marx & Freud: Useful Tools/Disinfect Before Using. But I love Rudy Rucker's slash masterpiece Turing and Burroughs, and maybe he's right about language being a virus from outer space. If so, I for one welcome our new viral overlords.
