Naked Lunch is one of the most important novels of the twentieth century, a book that redefined not just literature but American culture. An unnerving tale of a narcotics addict unmoored in New York, Tangiers, and, ultimately, a nightmarish wasteland known as Interzone. The restored text includes many editorial corrections and incorporates Burroughs s notes on the text and several essays he wrote over the years about the book. For the Burroughs enthusiast and neophyte alike, this is a valuable and fresh experience of this classic of our culture.

Review:

Ever since Naked Lunch...Williams S. Burroughs has been ordained as America s most incendiary artist. --Los Angeles Times

Burroughs possesses a special literary gift....[Naked Lunch] takes a coldly implacable look at the dark side of our nature.... --Books of the Century, New York Times

A masterpiece. A cry from hell, a brutal, terrifying, and savagely funny book that swings between uncontrolled hallucination and fierce, exact satire. --Newsweek
