For those who are picking up the books because of the author's father or love for The Beats, you're guaranteed good reading nuggets whenever the author recalls New York lunches with Ginsberg and his father's company--which apparently was rare and always eccentric. Additionally, if you're reading these book for those reasons then the following will have a Kerouac feel to it than a Burroughs Sr.
For everyone else, these books are not really anything special. Burroughs Jr. seems to lack the ability to embed the ugly emotions of being hooked on drugs, becoming an addict, and bad parenting. Not to say that the following could be read as the story of a young adult who was not a troubled person, but the poetry of being young, an addict, and a traveller of strange roads is not just beautifully captured here as it was in "Junky" or "On the Road."
Not a bad read though, and if you have a choice go "Kentucky Ham" over "Speed."
Kentucky Ham, is his experiences coming back to Florida and then the Lexington Rehab Center. Of the two Speed is the better and quicker read. Ham has a tendency to drag toward the end and his life in Alaska fishing is downright boring. Overall both are a good read for a writer that was cursed from birth.
Burroughs Jr., William S. but edited by David Ohle. I thought it was excellent, poignant, and deeply moving. It piqued my interest in this ill-fated son of the Naked Lunch author. For someone who gestated within a woman who was a drug addict and alcoholic, he was remarkably witty and poetic He had promise. Billy Burrough's is one of the most tragic human stories I've ever heard. After (possibly) witnessing his father drunkenly shooting and killing his mother in a careless game, he was raised by loving grandparents in relative affluence and stability. Yet, he could not veer from marching down the path of self-annihilaton. His writing could be quite charming, and his phrasing was often amazingly creative and original. He could be funny. But what really made me care about him the most was the feeling that he was being honest and real about who he was, and where he was going.
