Queer

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This novel by William Burroughs, though not as famous as 'The Naked Lunch', marks the first appearance of his coruscating style of humour. Set in Mexico City in the 1940s, it took a while for publishers to dare to publish this explicitly homosexual love story. This first edition hardback still has a dust cover in good condition, the boards are clean and the pages also, though they are a bit yellowed with age.
