This engaging summary presents an analysis of Junkie by William S. Burroughs, a semi-autobiographical account of a young man’s struggles with drug addiction. After his first experience with morphine, the novel’s protagonist quickly becomes addicted to the drug, and gets involved in increasingly desperate schemes to get his next fix. His dependence leads to clashes with the law and stints in both prisons and rehabilitation centres, as he cycles between sobriety and enslavement to ‘junk’. Junkie was the first novel published by William S. Burroughs, and was originally published under the pseudonym William Lee. It was branded ‘obscene’ when it was first published, but has come to be seen as one of the seminal novels of the Beat Generation.
