Burroughs Ý Junky Epub Ì Ý junky free, Junky eBook “I have learned the cellular stoicism that junk teaches the user I have seen a cell full of sick junkies silent and immobile in separate misery They knew the pointlessness of complaining or moving They knew that basically no one can help anyone else There is no key no secret someone else has that he can give you” Junky was a concise yet vivid account of heroin addiction delineated by someone who’d actually lived the life Though the book was often bleak it never degraded itself by indulging in self pity or tearful sentimentality In fact its subtle dry humor crackled and even spit occasional sparks Overall it was honest lucid and powerful Burroughs already evinced uite a bit of genuine skill and talent in this his very first novel

    PDF William S.
