Burroughs has been on my list of writers to check out for a long time.

I have a long list.

I love everything this guy recorded or wrote. He was like a force of nature. The "Cities of the Red Night" trilogy blew my mind. This is a must-have album, along with "Spare Ass Annie and Other Tales".

Naked Lunch was an interesting novel, but the film adaptation I found to be yawm inducing

Find a book called "Word Virus". It's a Burroughs anthology and also includes a CD of spoken word. New, at a bookstore, it might run ya 35 dollars. If yer cheap, see if your local library has it first.

I like Bukowski myself, but strangely Bukowski hated Burroughs.

A book CD combo is a great idea. I absolutely recommend hearing him before reading him. It makes it ever so much easier.

JediScum, you are completely correct..
I remember Bukowski jabbing Burroughs in one of his books saying something along the lines of Burroughs sitting at a bar crying in his beer after selling the movie rights to "Naked Lunch" for the amount of what it cost to buy a case of beer... or something along those lines.

I think Bukowski just generally disliked the "Beat" poets because someone always tried to group him in with that whole crew and Bukowski believed himself to be very far off from that whole click.

Yeah, "Word Virus" would probably be a good place to start reading Burroughs.
