The New Criterion, Volume 25, Number 3, November 2006




Contains "All Bark, No Bite", a review by Anthony Daniels of the Oliver Harris reissue of William S. Burroughs' and Allen Ginsberg's The Yage Letters Redux. This is an exceptionally ad hominem, venomous review of Burroughs' work, and of those supporting him; less a considered review than a character attack.

Published in New York City, by The Foundation for Cultural Review Inc. in November, 2006.
