Description

'Junk is not, like alcohol or a weed, a means to increased enjoyment of life. Junk is not a kick. It is a way of life.' In this complete and unexpurgated edtion of Burroughs' famous book, he depicts the addict's life: his hallucinations, his ghostly noctural wanderings, his strange sexuality and his hunger for the needle. JUNKY remains one of the most accurate and mesmerising account of addiction ever written.
