Description - The Stray Bullet by Jorge Garcia-Robles

William S. Burroughs arrived in Mexico City in 1949, having slipped out of New Orleans while awaiting trial on drug and weapons charges that would almost certainly have resulted in a lengthy prison sentence. Through meticulous research and interviews with those who knew Burroughs and his circle in Mexico City, Garcia-Robles brilliantly portrays a time in Burroughs's life that has been overshadowed by the tragedy of Joan Vollmer's death.
