Reading Matters 2

Cities of the Red Night. My all-time No.1

This is a small selection of some of my favourite reading matter. Mainly fiction, and inevitably lots of William Burroughs is featured, but do check out some of the more obscure stuff as well.

Over time I'll be adding pop-up links to short descriptions and small cover images. Star ratings reflect a personal view and reflect both a qualitative judgment and how significant the book was for me when I first encountered it.

Publisher details relate to the edition on my shelves. Where known, original publication date is in [square brackets].

Philosophy texts can be found here.
