Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 39 min
Event Type: Interview  

At a press conference for an unidentified occasion, William S. Burroughs fields an array of questions and discusses his relationships with, or opinions of, Paul Bowles, Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Jose Delgado, and Alfred Korzybski, among others. Burroughs also gives his opinions on the women's movement, contemporary (1974) politics (Watergate, etc.), governmental methods of civilian control, and the possibilities of revolution and rebellion in the contemporary era. There is also a fairly extensive discussion in the last ten minutes of the program on his writing process, including use of the cut-up method or collage writing and the relationship of his own writing to the science fiction genre.
