Exploring Burroughs’ impact on rock ‘n’ roll

White Rabbit has acquired William S Burroughs and the Cult of Rock ‘N’ Roll by Casey Rae, publishing this September.


Lee Brackstone, publisher at White Rabbit, said: “Casey Rae’s book is a future pop culture classic which situates the Hip Priest of the Beat Generation at the heart of the rock ‘n’ roll narrative. As we build a new list of music-related titles at White Rabbit we intend to complement a frontlist dominated by hard-hitting memoirs such as Mark Lanegan’s bestseller with the literary history of the culture that created these artists. This is essential reading for anyone interested in Burroughs and you finish the book in the firm knowledge rock ‘n’ roll would look very different and much less exciting without his influence.”
