Set in the corrupt Mexico City of the forties, Queer is the story of William Lee, a man afflicted with both acute heroin withdrawal and romantic and sexual yearnings for an indifferent user named Eugene Allerton. The narrative is punctuated by Lee's outrageous 'routines'--brilliant comic monologues that foreshadow Naked Lunch--yet the atmosphere is heavy with foreboding. In his extraordinary introduction , Burroughs reflects on the shattering events in his life that lay behind this work.
