Famous for his once open heroin use, his homosexuality and the bizarre and accidental killing of his wife, it is the shattering insight of his books that have made him one of the most admired but also one of the most controversial writers of this century. "Naked Lunch", his most famous book and now a feature film, was burnt by British Customs. Musicians grabbed names like "Joy Division" and "Heavy Metal" from his works and his benefactors and friends include Allen Ginsberg, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, Mick Jagger and Lou Reed. This insight into his life and work is written by his close friend Barry Miles.
