It’s not everyday a dead author is on trial for corrupting Turkish people. But the controversial author and poet, William S. Burroughs, 14 years after he died, is on trial for his novel The Soft Machine. According to Dangerous Minds, “The Istanbul Prosecutor’s Office has opened an investigation into Burroughs’ novel The Soft Machine, which was recently translated and published by Sel Publishing House in January.”
If that is not the ultimate compliment, than we don’t know what is. To be dead and corrupting morality? You win, Burroughs.
