Down and out with William S. Burroughs

In the mid-1980s, I worked for a tiny book publisher on Canal Street in Chicago. I edited books and even learned how to design one. I got paid peanuts. But I loved my job. I played with words all day and helped writers make sense of the world. I learned about art and culture from a refined editor whose desk was buried in books. I learned about Siddha Yoga and Kate Millett’s Sexual Politics from a designer who worked at a desk near mine.
