‘Junk is not, like alcohol or weed, a means to increased enjoyment in life. Junk is not a kick. It is a way of life.’ Burrough’s cult classic is a raw, semi-autobiographical account of drug addiction, which outraged America and influenced generations of writers to come. He relates with unflinching realism the highs and lows of dependency- euphoria, hallucinations, ghostly nocturnal wanderings and strange sexual encounters. Junky is a dark, powerful and mesmerizing account of one man’s challenge to turn self-destruction into art.
