“Naked Lunch” turns 50 this year

And here’s a good breakdown of the William S. Burroughs classic. If you’ve never read the book, do it. It’s not easily accessible, particularly if you’re not accustomed to experimental fiction, but it’s worth the effort.

You can skip the terrible film adaptation by Cronenberg.
