Influential American writer (1914–1997) who takes a place among the seminal figures of the Beat Generation. Nearly as well known for his prodigious intake of drugs and sometimes bizarre antics as for his writing, Burroughs drew heavily on his own life for inspiration in producing such novels as Junkie and the legendary Naked Lunch. Striking and uncommon satin-finish 7 x 9.5 extreme close-up photo, signed in ballpoint in the blank lower margin “William S. Burroughs, 5/23/1997.” In very fine condition. R&R COA.
