AGAINST CONTROL by Jack Sargeant
Against Control collects together a selection of essays by author Jack Sargeant that explore the multiple influences of William S Burroughs and various aspects of the wider Burroughs’ Universe. In these essays aspects of Burroughs’ work, and especially his speculative ideas, are presented through their intersections with sound, with imagined histories, and with mythologies. Incorporating ideas from the philosophies of libertarian pirates to Brion Gysin and Ian Sommerville’s Dreamachine, from the space program and science fiction literature to the Master Musicians of Joujouka, and all points in between. These pages offer jumping off-points and strategies for new ideas and points of research.
Against Control is released in a standard 97 pages hard-cover version and a strictly limited special edition of 23 copies is available. With a handprinted picture suitable for framing by Belinda Sinclair, the edition is signed and numbered by Jack Sargeant.
