Brion Gysin is a legend. As an artist, author, filmmaker, and long-term collaborator of William S. Burroughs, Gysin helped to develop the so-called Beat aesthetic from the beginning, influencing one of the most important American art movements of the last century and helping to shape decades of literature and art across the world. In "Brion Gysin: Here to Go", Terry Wilson introduces us to this singular talent through Gysin's own words. Best known for his discovery of the cut-up technique and the invention of the dreamachine, Gysin devoted his greatest efforts to painting and drawing. He was a man of diverse interests and strident opinion; the interviews collected here cover topics as diverse as magick and psychic warfare, and as intermingled as literature and drugs. With excerpts from Gysin's own written work and a rare extract from Gysin's original screenplay of Burroughs' "Naked Lunch", this is the most complete assembly of Gysin's written work. And, with additional texts by Burroughs himself, this is the best introduction to the life, work, and philosophy of one of the twentieth century's most neglected, yet visionary, polymaths.
