PRETORIA, South Africa - Two distinct portraits are emerging at the Pretoria High Court murder trial of South African Olympian Oscar Pistorius. The prosecution's portrayal of Pistorius as an aggressive, gun-loving, controlling man with a quick temper was countered Monday by the athlete, who testified for the first time in the month-old trial. Pistorius described himself as a serious, deeply religious good Samaritan, racked with crippling remorse about fatally shooting his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in the early hours of Valentine's Day 2013.

Here they are, four beautiful, anguished young faces, framed in one picture (Metro, May 12), shocked by the drive-by shooting death of a beloved 18-year-old athlete (Juan Enriquez)--a silent, eloquent sermon against the senselessness of it all, a mute appeal for responsible action by government and citizenry to bring street violence under control. Can it be done? It must be done. Incidentally but importantly, the picture is a tribute to the skill and sensitivity of the photographer (J. Albert Diaz)

William S. Burroughs' "Naked Lunch" stands with Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" and Allen Ginsburg's "Howl" as the seminal texts of the Beat Generation. With its harrowing scenes of junkie depravity, its view of postwar America was the most extreme of all the Beats. Yet few American literary figures have enjoyed more second acts than Burroughs. He was spokesman for the countercultural movement in the '70s, begrudgingly bore the label Godfather of Punk in the '80s, and was a spoken-word performer and visual artist until his death in 1997.
