Burroughs, William S
NAKED LUNCH
Grove Press, Inc, 1959. First Edition. Hardcover. First American Edition, so stated with the $6.00 price on the dust jacket. Signed by William S. Burroughs on the title page. Hustler-addict Bill Lee travels from New York to Tangiers, running from the police and searching for a place to take drugs, until he enters the hallucinatory fantasy world of Interzone, where individual freedom confronts the forces of totalitarianism. Regarded as one of the most important novels of the 20th century, Naked Lunch exerted its influence on the relationship of art and obscenity, redefining not just literature but American culture. Octavo. Original black paper-covered boards over a black cloth spine, with gilt titles. The boards are ever so slightly bowed. Just a hint of edgewear to the dust jacket, with some very light sun fading along the spine. Better than very good. Very good / Very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Johnson Rare Books (johnsonrarebooks) [Covina, California, United States]
