A couple years ago we sold books at a fundraiser to help a director with a documentary about William S. Burroughs. Well guess what? The movie is now available on DVD, and we’re excited to be selling it here. The film is William S Burroughs: A Man Within by local filmmaker Yony Leyser. All sorts of folks weigh in about the author of such contemporary classics as Naked Lunch and Junky: Patti Smith, John Waters, Iggy Pop, Jello Biafra, Thurston Moore, Gus Van Sant, Laurie Anderson and more. It comes in a fancy box an the DVD has all sorts of extras. $22.00
