About this book
First paperback publication of the collaboration between Burroughs and Kerouac of their part in the cover-up of the killing of David Kammerrer. This is the fictionalised account of the killing.
In 1944, the authors, then still unknown writers, were both arrested following a murder: one of their friends had stabbed another and then come to them for advice - neither had told the police. This book is an insight into the lives and literary development of two great writers.
