When I first sunk my teeth into this book I was not so sure it was going to be a good un The first few vignettes short stories in Exterminator are not that great actually but the book gets better and better and betterI would give the first 5 10 vignettes only about 3 stars on average but then somewhere along the line bang we are suddenly graced with the brilliance of WSB s presence and his great sardonic humour is as acerbic witty and brilliant as ever here I do get the feeling though like some other reviewers of Burroughs work have pointed out before that he was immensely pessimistic some might argue realistic about mankind to the point of becoming le misanthrope redolent of MoliereThere are also early signs even here during a relatively early work of Burroughs of his latter day environmentalism and humanism which is celebrated in novels such as Ghost of Chance and The Cat Inside two books incidentally which I read just last month and hence still fresh in my mind There are moments when Burroughs comes across as abrasively repetitive such as the nigger hating sheriff character who seems to make an appearance in almost every Burroughs novel I felt like saying ok William we get the point While I was reading Exterminator I caught myself wondering whether some Americans might not be offended by the grotesue picaresue send ups of American society which Burroughs creates in these short stories Or do they see his sardonic humour as a grave warning of impending danger And to give credit where it is due Burroughs is uite right and uite justified in sounding the alarm If anything times have gotten worse Remember that back in 1962 at the height of Cuban missile crisis we were only moments away from possible nuclear disasterOne of the funniest moments in this book is when a Burroughs character says that we need to watch the commies or else our children will all be speaking Chinese At the time this was an accurate portrayal of American political paranoia and hysteria These days I hate to say it might be slightly real well for me at least as I sit in an office in Tokyo and write this In summary some of the short stories in here present nothing all that new that we haven t seen before from Burroughs but there are a few real diamonds to be found here

Burroughs ´ 0 Read & download Summary Exterminator L play their parts in this mosaiclike experimental novel Here is William S Burroughs at his coruscating and hilarious bes. I used to have this down as a five star book I went to reread it and it was a lot worse than I remembered Part of this is just context in than one way the first time I read Exterminator was basically all in one go late at night in a tent while camping I read it in a non literal fever gulping the whole thing down Re reading it now which I did over the course of a few days commuting on the subway and bus I didn t get as caught up in it as before and before Burroughs or anyone else insinuates that I m in the grip of Control now or something I should add that I was much so back then anyway both in terms of what I did for work and my own personal politicsunderstanding of the world Somehow that first time through my brain was able to just shove aside and ignore my abhorrence of all the anti Semitism misogyny rape child sexualization it s not like I enjoyed the repeated phrase young boys need it special that first time through but how did I not just spit out the whole book racism and so on throughout I guess maybe on some level I bought into the bullshit Burroughs spreads here about subversive art which honestly even if some of this was at the time it s possible to outlive your context you know but I m sure even then I was aware there s a big gap between censorship and thinking it s fine and dandy to normalize fucking kids Also while I did know about Burroughs murdering his wife Joan Vollmer I didn t know about a lot of the other shit he and Ginsberg got up to And yes I think that is a valid part of how I feel about this and Burroughs other books another writer s Burroughs references actually prompted me to write about it recently and I stand by what I say thereSo why two stars Well the parts that aren t horrifying for the wrong reasons here are really fucking good You can t give zero stars here and Exterminator is legitimately worthwhile than books that are just as awful but poorly written The bit on the discipline of DE begged to be expanded on the language is often startlingly vivid even in the shitty sections of course and I was still stopped in my tracks by Do you begin to see there is no face there in the tarnished mirror Nobody s saying Burroughs had to be a saint or only write about nice things to write good books or be worth reading it s actually a pretty fucking low bar for him to meet And he doesn t come remotely close to meeting it I m not reluctantly pretending I dislike it for external reasons it s genuinely authentically cringe inducing and awful
