About DON’T HIDE THE MADNESS

In DON'T HIDE THE MADNESS, the fathers of the Beat movement converse about deeply intimate and personal history while gathered at Burroughs’ house in Lawrence, Kansas. The conversation includes discussion of:
• David Cronenberg’s film adaptation of Burroughs' classic novel Naked Lunch
• Shamanism, including a detailed description of the shamanic exorcism of the demon Burroughs believes forced him to kill his common-law wife in 1951
• Literary associates, influences, techniques, and insights
• Punk rock’s contributions to counterculture lore

With the current political landscape mirroring many aspects of the early Beat period, DON’T HIDE THE MADNESS is particularly timely. Interest in both authors’ work is on the rise. Many consider these legendary icons’ perspectives to particularly prophetic.

High Praise for DON’T HIDE THE MADNESS

“This oral trove is a compendium of trenchant, ordinary and magical gnosis . . . A tangible, tender, and totally engaging tour de force, and balm for the dystopia time we’re caught in.” —Anne Waldman, poet, feminist, and activist

"A beautiful book where you are pleasantly sitting with two originators of Beat-ism.” —Gus Van Sant, film director

“A penetrating riff on thestarry dynamo of America." —Dr. Peter Weller, actor, scholar

“Beatific banter … energy of intellect, eros and rapacious vision.” —Thurston Moore, musician

“Must-have resource for beat aficionados . . . thoroughly in tune, with two legendary literary iconoclasts.” —Publishers Weekly

“Devotees of these Beat Generation icons will find these conversations between longtime friends both entertaining and revealing” —Library Journal

“Will make both fanboy and scholar sit up straight at attention.” —Sensitive Skin
