Ureaucracy and addiction in all its forms Burroughs gives us a surreal space odyssey through the wounded galaxies in a book only he could creat. Burroughs has the power to make almost anyone s skin crawl His works are clusters of unfocused creative genius complete with hoards of vulgarities and absurd gags Naked Lunch was a transcendent reading experience for me it was like nothing I d ever read before It was something uniue and edgy totally off the walls crazy to a point of extreme difficulty but also extreme entertainment The Soft Machine is uite similar in these regards but it is also even less focused and experimental It s really just a bunch of words jammed together to form sentences that are hilarious original satirical disgusting and above all absolutely bewildering in every way imaginable I assume this entire thing was written by Burroughs while he was on some heavy drugs which is pretty much the case with most of his work but this one especially There s no plot here although there are scenes and reoccurring characters but they are likely to disappear a time any moment In the middle of a sentence everything can change over the course of a single page excrement can turn into metal and the phrase rectal mucus may even be used several goddamn times The faint of heart might want to stay away from this one for sure as it does get pretty damn nasty at times which is actually an understatement Seriously this book can get really fucking gross and disturbing as it is filled with violently sexual and sexually violent content as well as some of the most repulsive descriptions of obscene to say the least acts in literary history However it s also pretty funny and is not afraid to be both enjoyable and disgusting simultaneously which is a trick few authors can pull off nearly as well as Burroughs So dive into this insane discomforting oddity at your own risk but be warned it may be the most confusing and gross thing you ve ever read even if you re used to transgressive and experimental lit

Recesses of his imagination a region where nothing is sacred nothing taboo Continuing his ferocious verbal assault on hatred hype poverty war b. The Soft Machine is like a travelogue concocted by a perverted and drugged space travelerI had this special Green Boy I was making it with who knew the ropes you might say and he told me we have to tune the heat wave out with music So we get all the Indians and all the Green Boys with drums and flutes and copper plates and stayed just out of the heat blast beating the drums and slowly closed in lam had rigged up a catapult to throw limestone boulders and shattered the cubicle so we move in with spears and clubs and finish them off and smashed the heat sending set that was a living radio with insect parts We turn the Green Boys loose and on our way rejoicingIt is an acid trip in which atrocities and scatology are special delicacies and tidbits on offerI pushed into a Turkish Bath and surprised a faggot brandishing a deformed erection in the steam room and strangled him straightaway with a soapy towel I had to check in I was thin now barely strength in my receding flesh to finish off that tired faggot I got into my clothes shivering and gaping and walked into the terminal drugstore Five minutes to twelve Five minutes to score I walked over to the night clerk and threw a piece of tin on himAnd William S Burroughs surely is a revolutionary but I don t know exactly of what sort however probably sexual or maybe chemical or perhaps even linguistic During the sex act he metamorphosed himself into a green crab from the waist up retaining human legs and genitals that secreted a caustic erogenous slime while a horrible stench filled the hut I was able to endure these horrible encounters by promising myself the pleasure of killing this disgusting monster when the time came And my reputation as an idiot was by now so well established that I escaped all but the most routine control measuresIt takes all kinds to make the world so even a depiction of despicable vices can be hustled at a profit

    I know it is experimental It reminds me of those alchemists' experiments when they tried to produce gold from excrements And failed Ultimately they were just dabbling in shitThis book reads as if Burroughs swallowed words like rectal mucous compost heap jissom masturbate cock dropped his pants And just threw the

    If you imagine the stereotype of an avant garde experimental book that's The Soft Machine Sure it's a clever idea but actually reading it would be a painful thing My process reading the book went like this p5 the start what's going on here? p6 how long is this going to continue? p9 oh it's going on for the whole
