The Politics of the Wild Boys

David Depestel

David Depestel was first introduced to William S. Burroughs almost twenty years ago through an unfortunate combination of a twisted teenage mind, an intriguing TV announcement for Cronenberg’s Naked Lunch, and clandestine VCR programming skills. He has been sold to the product ever since. To support his habit (and his family) he has done some editing and translating jobs, and currently works at the research office of the School of Arts KASK & Conservatory in Ghent, Belgium.
