Naked Lunch: The Restored Text

Naked Lunch is a series of somewhat autobiographical experiences from the author's drugged up mind. The "book" is only about half the audiobook. Afterwards, there is some correspondence, including the author's views of best ways to treat drug addiction. There are also some "outtakes" and editorial details. The analysis of the different types of drug addiction and different ways to help an addict were some of the best parts. The book itself does not try to do anything to glorify the underground sex and drug scene. It is horrible depravity. It feels absolutely disgusting. The junkie is stuck with a nasty addiction and a need for more "junk" just to put up with living in their world.
