Naked Lunch.... in Penguin!!

Post by davee_mac » Wed Nov 05, 2014 12:09 pm

Penguin have finally got the rights to publish Naked Lunch, it's coming out in January 2015!! (in the UK at least)

Anyone know if this will be a straight reprint from the Restored Text as previously published, or if it will have Professor Oliver Harris' magic editorial touch? (tieing in with the previous Penguin Restored Texts)?

Thanks, I'd not heard about that.

Had a look on Penguin's "coming soon" page and did a search for Naked Lunch. No result for that but it has got me asking, "who is this William E Burroughs?"

Wasn't he one of the early Eatniks?

Thanks. I see that unlike with the "restored" trilogy Amazon don't co-credit Harris, so perhaps he hasn't had a hand in this one. A pity if that is the case.

aww, that is a shame. But I suppose I can understand it though; with the appendices and the like and Grauerholz/Miles' afterwords it's a pretty comprehensive package, well as comprehensive as any such appendeces could get without taking up another 300 pages! (witness the awesomeness of NL@50, whoch for all its awesomeness was just the tip of the potential iceberg)
