The Yage Letters - William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg One of Burroughs' more down-to-earth works, it relates in a series of letters (sent to Allen Ginsberg) the author's search through Latin America for the psychotropic plant Yage, which had been rumored in legend to give the users telepathic abilities. There's no Interzone here, though Bogota and Peru can be nearly as strange at times given the situations Burroughs finds himself in. Not for everyone, but any fan of the Beats or WSB will want to check this one out.
