"Naked Lunch" is the unnerving tale of a monumental descent into the hellish world of a narcotics addict as he travels from New York to Tangiers, then into Interzone, a nightmarish modern urban wasteland in which the forces of good and evil vie for control of the individual and all of humanity. By mixing the fantastic and the realistic with his own unmistakable vision and voice, Burroughs has created a unique masterpiece that is a classic of twentieth century fiction.

‘A true genius and first mythographer of the mid-twentieth century, William Burroughs is the lineal successor to James Joyce. Naked Lunch is a banquet you will never forget’
‘A delirious exploration of sexual violence through the art of collage.’ Time OutFrom the Back Cover:
"Not a novel but a booty bought back from a nightmare, a coldly implacable look at the dark side of our nature."
NEW YORK TIMES
'Look down at my filthy trousers, haven't been changed in months… The days glide by strung on a syringe with a long thread of blood.. I am forgetting sex and all the sharp pleasures of the body – a grey, junk-bound ghost. The Spanish boys call me El Hombre Invisible – The Invisible Man…'
"A roller-coaster ride through hell, a safari to the strangest people of the strangest planet, ourselves… After the anaemic fare of contemporary fiction, sit back and gorge yourself on this feast of a novel."
