Berkeley, CA: Blue Wind Press, 1980. First American Edition. Hardcover. "Port of Saints is the mind-boggling story of a man whose alternate selves take him on a fantastic journey through space, time, and sexuality. The last work written by William S. Burroughs before his return to the United States in 1973, PORT OF SAINTS is partly experimental autobiography, partly profound exploration of the concept of sexuality, partly nightmare voyage through revolting alien sexual fantasy to the depths of the psyche: in short, an ultimate foray into that rich, savage landscape first depicted in Naked Lunch and The Wild Boys."
