Product Description

William Burroughs’ first novel, a largely autobiographical account of the constant cycle of drug dependency, cures and relapses, remains the most unflinching, unsentimental account of addiction ever written. Through junk neighborhoods in New York City, New Orleans and Mexico City, through time spent dealing and time rolling drunks for money, through junk sickness and a sanatorium, JUNKY is a field report (Burroughs trained in anthropology at Harvard) from the American post –WWII drug underground. A cult classic, it has influenced generations of writers with its raw, sparse, and unapologetic tone. This publication recreates the author’s original text word for word. Appendices, Notes. 166p.
