Re: RARA-AVIS: Heirs of Selby

God, how embarrassment. Maybe I was too young when I encountered all these people everyone's having a good laugh over but I actually liked the stuff I was exposed to - Algren, LAST EXIT, Rechy's CITY OF NIGHT & even the Electric Prunes
(although all I know of them is "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night" & generally I prefer the Chocolate Watchband & the Count Five). Please leave Bill Burroughs alone, or I'll be too embarrassed to wear my Burroughs t-shirt in public.
 again. I may have read Selby & Rechy over 20 yrs ago but I still don't believe they could've written anything as bad as Ellroy's last but maybe I should re-read the books before I make that claim.
