The 1937 photo of Burroughs in Dubrovnik is captioned as something along the lines of "Burroughs Harvard class photo" in Literary Outlaw. I wonder which is correct?
This seems to be the more reliable attribution. I have found the picture online so I put more confidence in Literary Outlaw
(also regarding the style the picture was taken.)
I'll have to check the books available to me about more facts about the first visit to Europe, but I am not very up to date with biographies about Burroughs. (I have the one by Miles but have to look if I also have another one.)
I guess it's time to get an update for more recent editions. Any suggestions which bios are recommended?
As to Burroughs' misogyny, that was something that he seemed to have in an off-hand way throughout his life, but it only became extreme and pathological (to the point where WSB refused to socialize with women in the late 60's and early 70's) under Brion Gysin's influence.
Oh yeah, we can blame Brion for that...
Sometimes I have the impression that Burroughs mysogynist statements have to be understood tongue in cheek..
