Electronic Revolution/Die Elektronische Revolution

William S. Burroughs

Expanded Media Editions, Germany, 1976. Bilingual (German/English)

Definitely a reader copy; wear to the cover and edges; some staining to the pages. Still, an intact copy of this very rare version.


From the text:

In the beginning was the word and the word was God and has remained one of the mysteries ever since. The word was God and the word was flesh we are told. In the beginning of what exactly was this beginning word? In the beginning of written history. It is generally assumed that the spoken word came before the written word. I suggest that the spoken word as we know it came before the written word.”


Essential, totemic Burroughs. This is a strange edition of a strange text, which to me, simply adds to its aura. A potent work of literary criticism which captures the “mind virus” aspects of language that Burroughs is best known for exploring. An affordable readers copy offered for your consumption.
