‘I can feel the heat closing in, feel them out there making their moves’ Nightmarish and fiercely funny, William Burroughs’ virtuoso, taboo-breaking masterpiece Naked Lunch follows Bill Lee through Interzone- a surreal, orgiastic wasteland of drugs, depravity, political plots, paranoia, sadistic medical experiments and endless, gnawing addiction. One of the most shocking novels ever written, Naked Lunch is a cultural landmark, now in a restored edition incorporating Burroughs’ notes on the text, alternate drafts and outtakes from the original. ‘A masterpiece. A cry from hell, a brutal, terrifying, and savagely funny book that swings between uncontrolled hallucination and fierce, exact satire.’ Newsweek Naked Lunch is a banquet you will never forget.’ J. G. Ballard Edited by James Grauerholz and Barry Miles
