The Job is William S. Burroughs at work, attacking our traditional
values, condemning what he calls "the American nightmare," and
expressing his often barbed views on Scientology, the police,
orgone therapy, history, women, writing, poitics, sex, drugs, and
death. His conversation splices images of death-by-hanging with
elevators and airports, the story of his drug addiction and cure
with ideas on the use of hieroglyphs.
