  • Junky


In this complete and unexpurgated edition of one of the most powerful books about drug addiction, Burroughs depicts the addict's life: his hallucinations, his ghostly nocturnal wanderings, his strange sexuality, and his hunger for the needle.

Following its hero from his Midwestern birthplace to New York, New Orleans, and Mexico City, Junky is a memorable and shocking demonstration of the junk equation: "Junk is not, like alcohol or weed, a means to increase the enjoyment of life. Junk is not a kick. It is a way of life."
