William S. Burroughs.

William S. One of The Soft Machine’s recurrent characters is The Guide, modeled after the local young hustlers who picked William Burroughs up as he explored the jungles of South America in the early 1950s, and any reader entering the book’s alien territory would take the advice of a guide: This bad place Meester.

The Soft Machine is a 1961 novel by American author William S. It was originally composed using the cut-up technique partly from manuscripts belonging to The Word Hoard. It is the first part of The Nova Trilogy. The title The Soft Machine.

The soft machine is the human body under constant siege from a vast hungry host of parasites with many names but one nature being hungry and one intention to eat. If I may borrow the lingo of Herr Doctor Freud while continuing to deplore the spread of his couch no one does more harm than folks feel bad about doing it Sad Poison Nice Guy more poison than nice-what Freud calls the id is a parasitic invasion of the hypothalamus and since the function of the hypothalamus is to regulate metabolism.

Burroughs is predictable: he will be Burroughs. This continuation of the notes for Naked Lunch is worth reading for anyone who takes Burroughs seriously, but not too seriously. His element is comedy, and his mastery of the genre shows in the bitter, depressing, spiteful aspects of life against which comedy always functions as the exposure of what happens when a metaphysical ideal meets an actual reality. Although Burroughs should be considered seriously, it is almost insult to him to suggest treating his work seriously. That's the paradox of his message, and if that seems appealing, then I recommend Soft Machine.

burroughs writing is just amazing. you may not like all the gay sex or you may like it a lot. regardless his way with the language is so remarkable that it supersedes everything else. and the cut-up technique pioneered here has become a part of our shared cultural history. if you love writing and imagination do yourself a favor and read it as soon as possible.
also, notes and supporting articles were very helpful in approaching this difficult text. highly recommended.

Burroughs is an acquired appetite. People first encountering his writing usually don't like it or don't know what the hell is going on. They focus on style, or content, or drugs, or obscenity. This is NOT the point! What is really revolutionary about this book is the use of the "Cut-Up Method" (which he attributes to Bryon Gysin). Cut-up refers to a technique in which ordinary linear text is literally "cut up" into short phrases, fragments, and individual words then reassembled using chance and random elements to form an entirely new text. The object was to reveal the true (hidden or subconscious) meaning of a piece of writing, and the result, often devoid of grammar and syntax, could not be interpreted according to traditional standards but calls for the creation of an entirely new literary esthetic and a consequent expansion of consciousness. Each of these "chapters" begins like a short story, easy enough to understand, but quickly degenerates into non-linear fragments of word and image, often with jarring effect, causing an assault on the senses, before recombining into recognizable linear meaning to end the chapter. WARNING: This book can be dangerous. Combining elements drawn from "Naked Lunch" with new material of a violent and sexual nature left this reader with a lingering mood as disturbing as "Justine" by Marquis de Sade. Clearly one of the most important books of the 20th century. (Compare with the drip paintings of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock or the hour-long modal improvisations of jazz musician John Coltrane.)

I'll never forget the smell of ozone, blue sparks, Uranium Willy: nothing soft about it

FANTASTIC BOOK...

very good when it is... drags a bit when its not... still you can find something good in it everywhere... skip to Mayan Caper chapter for a more linear story line...

Great writing! Great imagination! Up there with Orwell and Mailer and Thompson. Can't say I've read anything like any of those for the last 40 years. My reading did drop off significantly and that's a good reason why I haven't read. I just haven't tried.
