- "At once wry travelogue and heartbreaking tale of love lost, The Japanese Sandman is a visual interpretation of a letter William S. Burroughs wrote in 1953 to Allen Ginsberg (from the collection The Yage Letters). Told through Burroughs' incisive voice, cocaine snorting in Panama and post-prom handjobs in 1931 St. Louis becomes a meditation on loss, memory and the human condition. Actor/ performance artist John Fleck leads a stand-out cast through Burroughs recounting of scoring opiates, whores and boys in Panama and, in the letter's P.S., a love affair with farm boy Billy Bradshinkel in the Ozark's of his youth. Imperial Teen's Roddy Bottum provides the lively and compelling score"--Original container.
