Stray Bullet

Anybody currently reading William Burroughs in Mexico, Stray Bullet, Jorge Garcia Robles ( 2013 ) First English translation from his 1995 book. Thus far I think I like it, but I'm not too far in yet.

Re: Guardian Review of Andrew Lees, Mentored by a Madman

No glot...C'lom Fliday

Fliday's already come and went, but I thought I'd pretend it still is. It's gotta be still Fliday somewhere in China- Town, right? Somewhere there must still be an opium den open for bidness; axe Nick Tosches, maybe he still knows the way, but the last time I looked in his little book, The Last Opiu...
