"In Flash and Filigree, his first novel, he delivers yet another outrageously funny commentary on the dark side of our national life. Frederick Eichner, world-renowned dermatologist, is visited by the entrancingly irritating Mr. Felix Treevly, who comes to him as a patient and stays as an obsession. Mr. Treevly leads the doctor into a series of hilarious and increasingly weird situations, which, with the assistance of a drunken private detective, a mad judge, a car crash, and a hashish party, finally drive him to mayhem. A wild whirlwind of a novel, Flash and Filigree is a work of comic genius from one of the wittiest writers of our time"--Amazon.com

Burroughs by William S Burroughs( Visual )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Made up of intimate, revelatory footage of the singular author and poet filmed over the course of five years, Howard Brookner's 1983 documentary about William S. Burroughs was for decades mainly the stuff of legend; that changed when Aaron Brookner, the late director's nephew, discovered a print of it in 2011 and spearheaded a restoration. Now viewers can enjoy the invigorating candidness of Burroughs: The Movie, a one-of-a-kind nonfiction portrait that was brought to life with the help of a remarkable crew of friends, including Jim Jarmusch and Tom DiCillo, and that features on-screen appearances by fellow artists of Burroughs's including Allen Ginsberg, Herbert Huncke, Patti Smith, and Terry Southern

Dr. Strangelove : or, How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb : a novel by Peter George( Book )

20 editions published between 1963 and 2001 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stanley Kubric's celebrated black comedy classic about and 'accidental' nuclear attack was nominated for four 1964 Academy Awards. Created during a time when the paranoia of the Cold War was at its peak, the film still seems surpisingly relevant today. Convinced the Commies are polluting America's "precious bodily fluids," a crazed General (Sterling Hayden) orders a surprise nuclear air strike on the USSR. His aide Captain Mandrake (Peter Sellers) furiously attempts to figure out a recall code to stop the bombing. Meanwhile, the U.S. President (Sellers again) gets on the hot line to convince the drunken Soviet premier that the impending attack is a silly mistake, while the President's advisor (and ex-Nazi scientist) Dr. Strangelove (Sellers once more) confirms the existence of the dreaded Doomsday Machine -- a new secret Soviet retaliatory device guaranteed to end the human race once and for all!"--Estuche
