Author of Naked Lunch, Junkie, The ticket that exploded, Nova Express, Naked Lunch, The exterminator, The wild boys, The Soft Machine. Together, let's build an Open Library for the World. William S.

William S. The book is structured as a series of loosely connected vignettes. In Naked Lunch, William S. Burroughs revealed his genius. In The Soft Machine he begins an adventure that will take us even further into the dark recesses of his imagination, a region where nothing is sacred, nothing taboo. Continuing his ferocious verbal assault on hatred, hype, poverty, war, bureaucracy, and addiction in all its forms, Burroughs gives us a surreal space odyssey through the wounded galaxies in a book only he could create.

The hypocrisy of contemporary society is the focal point of this novel about various forms of extermination

William S. Burroughs had some brilliant works. Although some of them are a little too drug induced (Naked Lunch for example), I still found them enjoyable. This is a collection of incomplete stories or sketches & shorts. This includes, The Priest They Called Him which is one of my favorites from Burroughs. If you are a fan of Burroughs works this is a must have. I found this and Junky to be some of Burroughs easier reads. Interestingly enough, Burroughs did a reading of The Priest They Called him with Kurt Cobain supplying basically feedback as a background noise back in the day. I am glad I own that CD as it is one of my favorites from Burroughs and they are both now dead. Just remember one thing going into this, it's not an actual novel. The stories don't connect and not all of them are finished.
Highly recommend for the Burroughs fan that does not have the time to tackle a challenging novel. Bizzare short stories that could only come from Burroughs unique mind
First of all this is a nowadays rarely seen cut-up collaboration between Brion Gysin and William S. Burroughs, not to be confused with the later Burroughs publication "Exterminator! A Novel". This volume; The Exterminator, is a mixture of fiction, essay and poetry. This publication contains some of the wildest forgotten poety Burroughs never got full acknowledge for. The form and texture is a lot like "Minutes to Go" also penned by Burroughs/Gysin. If you are familliar with the works of Burroughs or Gysin, this is an exiting experience, but if you're not, well... I guess you don't wanna spend $45.00 on this rare volume.
this is Burroughs, he doesn't fit any forms to fill out
grand star
Had never read burroughs before this and now hes one of my favourites. highly recemmond
EXTERMINATOR! A NOVEL is without any question my favorite William S. Burroughs book. The "A Novel" of the title must surely be ironic, because the book is not in any recognizable sense a novel. It is a collection of largely unconnected sketches and scenes. Not every section is a masterpiece, but several are among the most surreal and brilliant things that Burroughs ever wrote. And for anyone who has not previously read any Burroughs, it is a brilliant introduction. I personally find it far more accessible and enjoyable than NAKED LUNCH, which, while it has many fine passages, nonetheless can at times become tedious.
Although by and large the various parts are unconnected, several are focused on the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago. In particular, the amazingly creative and hysterically funny "The Coming of the Purple Better One" takes that as its locale. The "Purple Better One" of the title refers to a baboon that is placed upon the convention podium, and upon whose face is superimposed the face of a white Southern, racist politician, whose recorded speech is then played. It is one of the more bizarre, brilliant, and absurd scenes in recent American literature. Another favorite is "The Discipline of DE," the DE standing for "Do Easy." The story is a strange blend of Zen Buddhist tract and self-help manifestation. Other favorites include the title story, with the narrator/exterminator repeating ominously "You want the service?" and a supposed film treatment "Twilight's Last Gleamings."
The collection features many of the themes usually associated with Burroughs: Sci-fi, fantasy, drugs, usual medical practices and phenomena, governmental nefariousness, and the corruption of capitalistic life.
As fragmentation was always Burroughs trademark, this collection of short stories or pieces of prose and some poems fits in with the whole of his oeuvre perfectly well, because it sheds light on some dark passages of his earlier work. Moreover it is essential in that it contains some of his most lyrical prose, the tale of the Priest has a transcending beauty resembling that of Joyce's The Dead. Where in the Wild Boys his straightforward attempts at more traditional writing failed occasionaly in blending with his experimental voice for which he is so renown, here they serve as counterpoints that have their own mysterious power, be it that there are also traces of the writers block that was building up inside of Burroughs round the time this was published. It was not before Places of the Dead Roads that he would fully realize and bring to bloom the possibilities created by this endeavour, although in a way this book can be seen as a try out for his epical masterpiece Cities of the Red Night that lacks the flow of the phrases that shine from the pages of this flawed gem.
