RARA-AVIS: Naked Lunch et al.

From: Juri Nummelin ( juri.nummelin@pp.inet.fi)

The beginning of "The Naked Lunch" is a good example of hardboiled paranoia and clearly a product of the late fifties, but it's only the beginning. It's a great work of literature, but not for everyone.

I read "Queer" couple of months back, but it wasn't as good as
"Junky". Interesting nevertheless and should be read by anyone who's read "Junky". It continues the story of Bill Lee, but this time the book focuses more on his relationships with other men.

William Burroughs as a hardboiled writer: didn't he write a story for the New Black Mask in the early seventies? I wonder what it was like.
