BRION GYSIN: HERE TO GO Interviews and Texts

BRION GYSIN: HERE TO GO Interviews and Texts

Sale 20% off 1 item

Brion Gysin is a legend. As an artist, author, filmmaker, and the long-term collaborator of William S. Burroughs, Gysin helped to develop the so-called Beat aesthetic from the beginning, influencing one of the most important American art movements of the last century and helping to shape decades of literature and art across the world.

In Here to Go, Terry Wilson introduces us to this singular talent through Gysin's own words. Best known for his discovery of the cut-up technique and the invention of the Dreamachine, it was to painting and drawing that Gysin devoted his greatest efforts. Gysin was a man of diverse interests and strident opinion; the interviews collected here cover topics as diverse as magick and psychic warfare, and as intermingled as literature and drugs.

With excerpts from Gysin's own written work and a rare extract from Gysin's original screenplay adaptation for Burrough's Naked Lunch, this is the most complete assembly of Gysin's written work. And, with additional texts by Burroughs himself, this is the best introduction to the life, work, and philosophy of one of the 20th century's most neglected, yet visionary, polymaths.
