Publisher's Summary

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. Through time spent kicking and time spent dealing, through junk sickness and a sanatorium, Junky is a field report from the American post-war drug underground. It has influenced generations of writers with its raw, sparse and unapologetic tone.

Most Helpful

a great book that audible has killed.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

anybody that can put their hands on this book will learn something about a world next door

What was one of the most memorable moments of Junky?

that i paid for it, downloaded it but never got it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes, if i only could figure out how to get it from audible

Any additional comments?

I am a Mac-usaer, but for the time being I use a PC. I bought 20 credits, but only got hold of 4. Audible has failed totally as the confusion on the webpage is a killing bore. I gave up. Goodbye.
