My Education A Book of Dreams

Written by William S. Burroughs

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics Series

My Education A Book of Dreams Synopsis

My Education is Burroughs's last novel, first published two years before his death in 1997. It is a book of dreams, collected over several decades and as close to a memoir as we will see.

Always a rich source of imagery in Burroughs's own fiction, in this book dreams become a direct and powerful force in themselves.
