Scientologist! William S. Burroughs and the “Weird Cult” is the title of my second book. It is an exploration of the author’s relationship with the Church of Scientology, its leader, and the science (or pseudo-science) behind it. In the book, I examine Burroughs’ life and why Scientology appealed to him so much, before looking at how he became a fully fledged member (a “clear”), and the fall-out, as he became one of the Church’s best known critics. Through all of it, I demonstrate just how important this much-loathed cult was in the creation of his work, indeed some of the most important literature of the 20th century.
