The publication of "Queer" by William Burroughs (1914-1947) is a personal and profound piece of writing, whose "love story" is as cuttingly vivid as it is mysterious and a little indescribable, in a typical Burroughs fashion. What sets this text apart is it's introduction, in which Burroughs describes the event of Joan's death in Mexico City. Setting the book in the context of such an intense self-reflection, he memorializes the book as difficult and deeply necessary, writing, "I have had no choice but to write myself out."
