EDITOR'S CHOICE

January 29, 1995|By Michael Pakenham

"My Education: A Book of Dreams," by Williams S. Burroughs, BTC Viking, 193 pages, $21.95. A Charming, scary, wistful, sad, ironic, eloquent, simple, mystic, concrete book by the 80-year-old writer who, dispite all of his appallingly disolute abuse of his body chemistry, arguably has done more to energize young writers than anyone else writing in the last generation and a half. Not for people allergic to weirdness.
