Burroughs Doc A Man Within Giveaway


The recent documentary about William S. Burroughs, A Man Within, was released on DVD last week, and its distributor, Oscilloscope Labs, sent us a copy to give away to one lucky Rumpus reader!

It’s a fascinating documentary that reveals a more private, sensitive picture of Burroughs than we’re used to. Click through for further details about the DVD and how to enter to win.

This is a reasonably complete picture of what the winner will receive (though I promise not to send the laundry, miscellaneous papers, and half-read books slightly visible in the background — and nota bene, there is no way you’re getting my packing trunk):

The DVD comes in a cardboard slipcase (front and back pictured at far left and right) and folds out once (center, below) and then twice (center, top). Two mini-essays are printed on the foldout itself, by David Byrne and Richard Hell.

Full information here.

To enter, please send an email to me at jeremy (at) therumpus (dot) net. Use the subject line “Burroughs,” and please include your name and your mailing address in the body of the email. No other information is necessary to enter. Your email will be assigned a number and we will have a random drawing to select the winner. You will only be notified if you win. Please enter by midnight on Saturday, February 26th, 2011.

Good luck!
