The Western Lands
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: December 2016
Duration: 8 hours 46 minutes
Here is the final novel of Burroughs' Red Night trilogy, available in audio for the first time.
A fascinating mix of autobiographical episodes and extraordinary Egyptian theology, Burroughs' final novel is poignant and melancholic. Blending war films and pornography, and referencing Kafka and Mailer, The Western Lands confirms Burroughs' status as one of America's greatest writers. The final novel of the trilogy begun with Cities of the Red Night and The Place of Dead Roads is a Book of the Dead for the nuclear age, an astonishing, profound, and revealing meditation on morality, loneliness, life, and death.
