Ghost of Chance

(1991)
A Novella by

 

William Burroughs shot his wife. But he was very kind to cats... This adventure story set in the jungle of Madagascar starts with a pirate on Madagascar who develops an obsessive relationship with a lemur and attempts to set up a Utoplan society. It then spins out to take in famllar Burroughs obsessions: drugs, paranoia, the origins of disease and the devastation of the universe - the obsessions that mark the work of the man who Norman Mailer once called, "the only American writer possessed by genlus." Driven by his concern about global environmental catastrophe. Burroughs concocts a powerful moral brew in one of his most accessible and finest books.
