MEDIA REVIEWS
"A masterpiece. A cry from hell, a brutal, terrifying, and savagely funny book that swings between uncontrolled hallucination and fierce, exact satire." --"Newsweek"
"Ever since Naked Lunch...William S. Burroughs has been ordained America's most incendiary artist." -"Los Angeles Times"
"A book of great beauty . . . . Burroughs is the only American novelist living today who may conceivably be possessed by genius." --Norman Mailer
"A great, an essential novel...[that] prefigures much that has occurred in history, the popular media and high and low culture in the past four decades." -"The Commercial Appeal" (Memphis)
"A creator of grim fairy tales for adults, Burroughs spoke to our nightmare fears and, still worse, to our nightmare longings. . . . And more than any other postwar wordsmith, he bridged generations; popularity in the youth culture is greater now than during the heady days of the Beats." --Douglas Brinkley, "The Los Angeles Times Book Review"
"Naked Lunch will leave the most amoral readers slack-jawed; and yet a trek beneath the depraved surface reveals interweaving caverns that ooze unsettling truths about the human spirit. . . . In the same galloping, lyrical way Walt Whitman celebrated democratic toilers of all stripes, Burroughs gleefully catalogs totalitarian spoilers and criminal types--be they human or monster, psychological or pharmacological." --Mark Luce, "The Kansas City Star"
"[Naked Lunch] made Burroughs's reputation as a leader of the rebels against the complacency and conformity of American society. . . . An outrageous satire on the various physical and psychological addictions that turn human beings into slaves. . . . Burroughs's vision of the addict's life, by which we may infer the lives of all of us in some sense, is a vicious death-in-life of unrelieved abnegation, utter enervation and baroque suffering. Dante could not have envisioned such a post-Holocaust, post-apocalyptic circle of hell." --F
