I just found this – quite the oddest posthumous collaboration ever, and yet singularly appropriate. William Burroughs reciting Brecht’s ‘What Keeps Mankind Alive’- even more sinister than the Tom Waits version.
Implausibly enough, I once met Burroughs at a party – the late Kathy Acker introduced us but we really didn’t have anything much to talk about. He was a writer I respected without liking, and I cannot imagine where I would have fitted into his world-view.
The whole Roz connects to everyone schtick is true, but often the connections are not significant.
