Ghost of Chance (Paperback)
?The man?s got something to say, so shut up and listen? Time Out ?Whether scorning the cult of the prophets or considering the nature of truth, his writing is by turns as dark as Conrad, as sexy as Genet, as complex as Derrida, but always uniquely his own? Attitude ?Ideal for the supercool, heavy-duty intellectual in your life? Elizabeth Young
Ghost of Chance is an adventure story set in the jungle of Madagascar and filled with the obsessions that mark the work of the man who Norman Mailer once called, "the only American writer possessed by genius." While tripping through the author's trademark concerns?drugs, paranoia, and lemurs, this short novel tells an important story about environmental devastation in a way that only Burroughs can tell it.
