The famous semi-fictional documentary of an addict’s universe. Tells of pleasure, pain, craving and curiousity in a matter-of-fact tone which is both chilling and revealing. Written before the cut-up period, the story is clear and straightforward, with no attempt to justify or excuse the problems it uncovers. In an ongoing atmosphere of hysteria over ‘drugs’, this book remains a realistic review of the myths obout use and addiction, from someone who’s actually been there. [New York: Penguin]
