"[William S. Burroughs and the Cult of Rock 'n' Roll] evidences why some call Burroughs the godfather of punk, right next to Iggy Pop." -Alternative Press

 

"[A] fascinating new book...Rae is an engaging storyteller and often an enlightening one...I’m grateful for Rae’s study and recommend it highly, not only to those (still) interested in Burroughs and rock music, but to anyone curious about the possibilities for creative synergy between the arts." -Journal of Popular Music Studies
