Review:

Schneiderman's and Walsh's new collection should mark the beginning of a new and wider view of the contemporary implications of Burroughs's thought. This book is retaking the universe of Burroughsian interpretation – starting now. (James Grauerholz)

The first serious and well conceived study of his [Burroughs's] global influence. (Victor Bockris)

El Hombre Invisible goes global. Thanks to Schneiderman and Walsh's Retaking the Universe, Burroughs finally manages to storm the theory studio. (Sylvere Lotringer, Editor of Semiotext(e) and Burroughs Live.)

More than any other writer of the last fifty years, William Burroughs cracked the code of the hyperreal, ultra-commodified society of control, and charted out possible lines of escape. These essays testify to the continuing relevance of Burroughs' words and project in the twenty-first century. (Steven Shaviro, author of Doom Patrols and Connected)

Schneiderman's and Walsh's new collection should mark the beginning of a new and wider view of the contemporary implications of Burroughs' thought. This book is retaking the universe of Burroughsian interpretation -- starting now. (James Grauerholz)
