Description
Information
Before 'Trainspotting', there was 'Junky': the original, first-hand account of heroin addiction which outraged '50s America and influenced generations to come.

William Burroughs, legendary drug addict, founder member of the Beats and author of 'Naked Lunch', depicts the addict's life: his hallucinations, his ghostly nocturnal wanderings, his strange sexuality, and his hunger for the needle. Burroughs masterfully relates with unflinching realism the highs and lows of mainlining smack, from initial heroin bliss to dependency, the horrors of cold turkey and back again.
