  The brilliance is found in the stylistic writing (now famously) and perspective of a depraved intellectual.

Burroughs is a bleak take on heroin addicts during the ss. The story tells how the main character, William Lee, goes from a middle-class existence in the Midwest to pushing/using drugs in New York City, from morphine to marijuana to cocaine to (mainly) heroin.

Junky is not much of a book, actually. I knew very little about writing at that time." Personally, I read plenty of compulsion in this vivid catalogue of withdrawal and fix, scores and sales.

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.
