BURROUGHS, William S.
The Last Words of Dutch Schultz
NY, Viking, (1975). "A Fiction in the Form of a Film Script," in which Burroughs takes the semi-coherent last words of a 1930s gangster as the point of departure for an imagined view of the dying man's inner life. There was a British limited edition with the same name that preceded this volume by five years, but it was substantially different in both form and content. Inscribed by the author in 1984: "For Bob Jackson/ all the best from the Dutchman/ William S. Burroughs." Fine in a very near fine dust jacket, with the publisher's name fading on the spine.
