"He was," as Salon's Gary Kamyia notes, "20th-century drug culture's Poe, its Artaud, its Baudelaire. He was the prophet of the literature of pure experience, a phenomenologist of dread.... Burroughs had the scary genius to turn the junk wasteland into a parallel universe, one as thoroughly and obsessively rendered as Blake's."

Why has this homosexual ex-junkie, whose claim to fame rests entirely on one book--the hallucinogenic ravings of a heroin addict--so seized the collective imagination? Burroughs wrote Naked Lunch in a Tangier, Morocco, hotel room between 1954 and 1957. Allen Ginsberg and his beatnik cronies burst onto the scene, rescued the manuscript from the food-encrusted floor, and introduced some order to the pages. It was published in Paris in 1959 by the notorious Olympia Press and in the U.S. in 1962; the landmark obscenity trial that ensued served to end literary censorship in America.

Burroughs's literary experiment--the much-touted "cut-up" technique--mirrored the workings of a junkie's brain. But it was junk coupled with vision: Burroughs makes teeming amalgam of allegory, sci-fi, and non-linear narration, all wrapped in a blend of humor--slapstick, Swiftian, slang-infested humor. What is Naked Lunch about? People turn into blobs amidst the sort of evil that R. Crumb, in the decades to come, would inimitably flesh out with his dark and creepy cartoon images. Perhaps the most easily grasped part of Naked Lunch is its America-bashing, replete with slang and vitriol. Read it and see for yourself.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A retrospective: 12. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Naked Lunch is, for better or worse, the key to most people's experience of Burroughs' writing. And they either love it or hate it. Most people I talk to say they couldn't get through it, and this is easy to understand. What is it about this book that people keep talking about it?
So NL was/is a revolutionary book, and reading it for the first time can be a fireworks experience. At the same time it must be admited that the writing is uneven - since everything was so new, he and his fellow editors could hardly tell what to keep and what to discard. NL is like visiting a genetics lab before they've had a chance to throw out all the failures.
Naked Lunch is a record of a Burroughs' writing break-through. He started trying to write another Junky (see NL's first chapter) and ends up trying to destroy language (the cut-ups he slips into the end of the book - contrary to common belief, NL is not a "cut-up" book in the sense of the technique Burroughs later employed).
My own advice to first-time readers is to skip or skim the first chapter, which drags and creates a wrong impression of the rest of the book. Thereafter you should read as the mood takes you, receiving the writing as a series of darkly-humorous skits, lectures and moods.
It's perfectly valid to just dip into the book anywhere, and read for as long as the mood holds you. The structure Burroughs' originally planned for this book was disposed of in the final edit, and the published version is almost completely random. The book may also be a little disconcerting because of its period - a lot of the satires and characters relate specifically to the repressive USA of the late 1950's, and many of these archetypes are now extinct.

I don't want to sound stupid or something, but it took me three times to get through this book. It wasn't because I was offended or anything but because it was so weird in parts that it lost me. Determined that this book was not going to kick my butt I went back and read it, and this time finished it. And it blew my mind. There were parts of the book that I wouldn't call offensive (maybe because I'm not easily offended), but there are parts that are not for the weak of stomach...the whole affair with Slastubitch (I believe that's his name) comes to mind. Yet it's there for a purpose. Burroughs was pointing out just how ignorant and hypocritcial society of his time (and of our time too) was, and writing about Mugwumps secreting juices out of their penises was a sure fire way to do this. There are also parts of this book that I found to be downright hilarous, particularly anything involving a purple assed baboon. I've practically lent this book out to all my friends, or have convinced them to buy it. One of my professors here at RU told me that of all the beats, Burroughs was the true visionary of the bunch, and upon reading the Naked Lunch, his remark is easily justified.

What else can I say, other than that this is "the" book that has brought William S. Burroughs the most fame(infamy?) and glory. Most people interested in Beat Literature choose Kerouac for insight, but I feel that Burroughs gets to the root of the Beatniks' most defining element: Drug use/abuse. His style is unrelenting. His prose harsh and ragged, not unlike himslef for some 15 odd years of his life in which he lived as a junky. I urge the reader to not read this book in sequence from beginning to end as a traditional novel. Instead, read a chapter or two at a time. Then, set it down and leave it alone for a day. The next day, return and continue reading. Each pargraph; each page is a message unto itself. Burroughs uses a rehab center in a place called Interzone, the character William Lee, and a sadistic orgy to help convey the over-all idea that the junky is a sad and tragic individual. But, what makes the junky so tragic is not his position in life. It is the sad fact that he put himself there in the first place. And, to spite himself, the junky's body must continue this act even though his mind says no. It is sad that this book has not been given the credit that it is due. Only at the end of his life did Mr. Burroughs begin to reap the rewards of his, and his comrades' work. As though he couldn't stand another minute in the world of the straight and narrow without a friend(Allen Ginsberg, the last Beat), he died after a life of extreme hardships and bittersweet success. Needless to say, this book sums up Burroughs' early life on the streets before any real intimations of success. It is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for those of you who prefer "popular" literature. It is for those of us who seek the truth, and read books about certain topics for an element of reality.

4.0 von 5 Sternen listen up wiseguys 22. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book is important now as ever. Think of it as a public service announcement, a warning against heroin. More important today as there are 3 times as many users than there were 10 years ago. I can't help but think that if some of these users had first read this book they'd have never started. That's because Naked Lunch draws the peramiters of hell on earth and hell on earth is caused by pure and total addiction. Addiction to drugs, sex, political power or what have you. It's not an easy read because much of the prose style is fragmented, just as our actual thoughts are...but if you take time to examine some of these paragraph length fragments, more often than not you'll be rewarded with thought provoking insight, and sometimes with lyrical poetry. And then sometimes you'll just be discusted. But you don't wade neck deep through Borroughs filth and get nothing in return. He's dredged the bottom and brought back some important messages. I suggest not begining this book at the begining but randomly opening it to the middle and begining. Read it at random just as it was written and you'll get more out of it. Finally, if the US government were a bit more hip they'd be wise to how much this book could help them in their anti-drug campaign. Naked Lunch is a friend to the US government? Now that would really make Buroughs roll in his grave.
