about

My Education is William S. Burroughs's final collection, first published two years before his death in 1997. It is a book of dreams, written over several decades and as personal and close to a memoir as we will see. The dreams cover themes from the mundane and ordinary -- conversations with his friends Allen Ginsberg or Ian Sommerville, feeding his cats, procuring drugs or sex -- to the erotic, bizarre, and visionary. Always a rich source of imagery in Burroughs's own fiction, in this book, dreams become a direct and powerful force in themselves.

"Mr. Burroughs has lost none of his irreverence or wit, but in recent years he has acquired an elegant, elegiac tone." – The New York Times

From Our Editors

In his latest book, Burroughs pushes into new territory, once again committing the unspeakable crime of questioning the reality structure. Dreams, always a rich source of imagery in Burroughs' works, here become a direct and powerful force. My Education, direct, honest, humorous and subversive, is a truly original work
