Naked Lunch

The reader follows the narration of junkie William Lee, who takes on various aliases, from the US to Mexico, eventually to Tangier and the dreamlike Interzone. The vignettes (which Burroughs called ‘routines’) are drawn from Burroughs’ own experience in these places, and his addiction to drugs and alcohol. This cover shows William S. Burroughs as the writer as well as the addicted man he was. When the book is turned up side down, the illustration represents an empty liquor bottle.
