9780007115198: Naked Lunch (1960s Classic)

The anarchic, phenomenally strong-sellling classic from the godfather of the Beats.

Welcome to Interzone…

Say hello to Bradley the Buyer, the best narcotics agent in the business. Attend international playboy A.J.’s annual party, where the punch is to be treated with extreme caution. Meet Dr ‘Fingers’ Schafer, the Lobotomy Kid and his giant centipede, ‘The Complete American De-anxietized Man.’ And enter the dark and infernal mind of Bill Lee as he pursues his daily quest for the ultimate merchandise…

Provocative, influential, morbidly fascinating, ‘Naked Lunch’ is an apocalyptic ride through the darker recesses of the human psyche.

‘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’
JG Ballard

‘A delirious exploration of sexual violence through the art of collage.’ Time Out

From 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."

'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."
