With Revolvers Aimed...Finger Bowls - Claude Pelieu (Beach Books/City Lights 1967)

1st: the cover by Norman Mustill is a classic.
2nd: Pelieu proved with this book that it was possible to acknowledge the master, Mr Burroughs, whilst creating cut-up texts that stand on their own merits. Anyone interested in the art of the cut-up should get this book.
3rd: you think creating cut-ups is easy? It is. The process of selection, however, is another matter.

'Somebody has to program the machine; somebody has to do the cutting up.' - W.S.B.
