RARA-AVIS: Naked Lunch

From: Michael Robison ( miker_zspider@yahoo.com)
Date: 20 Oct 2006

Read this during a long travel day this week. I've read lots of praise for it. Evidently Burroughs is revealing the depths of depravity borne of drug addiction, sadism, and pedophilia. I was glad to find out that my suspicion that these things are being glorified is unwarranted. Communicable disease and every imaginable human excretion figure largely. The how-bad-can-I-make-it attitude is reminiscent of fellow Beat author Selby's Last Exit to Brooklyn.

This book couldn't be published today. No publisher would touch the satire on Islamism.
