Summary

Burroughs’ first novel, a largely autobiographical account of the constant cycle of drug dependency, cures, and relapses, remains the most unflinching, unsentimental account of addiction ever written. Through time spent kicking and time spent dealing, through junk sickness and a sanatorium, Junky is a field report from the American postwar drug underground. A cult classic, it has influenced generations of writers with its raw, sparse, and unapologetic tone.

The best of the beat generation.

Very snappy pace and absorbing. Although a depressing subject it was never hard to read.
The narration was perfectly suited.

Narrator is great, I'd recommend anything he reads. Obviously it's a great book by a great author too.
