In Naked Lunch you are taken into the mind of William S. Burroughs -- a twisted, drug addicted man, who also happens to be genius. Novels like these -- that stretch limitations -- are important, though, because they remind us of our baser instincts.

Becoming aware of and familiarizing ourselves with the sicknesses that can exist in human beings can actually further our empathy and appreciation; it can increase the likelihood that we note everyday acts of generosity, and therefore increase the chances that we, in kind, continuously act in such a way.

Read a worthless, mind-numbing romance novel for all I care. Sure there are gross books out there that have no deeper meaning; but even these, I believe, have every right to be read.

After all, who are you -- in your blatant subjectivity -- to choose what defines worthwhile art for others?

William S. Read the damn book; I have nothing more to add For embellishing perfection has never been a fad. This is a one-of-a-kind novel.

Couldn't help myself with the Alexander Pope-style heroic couplets since Burroughs is at the extreme opposite end of the literary spectrum from the great Alexander Pope, and that's understatement!

I've just seen that there is a David Cronenburg film of this book. It's the perfect pairing. The only other person who could have filmed this is perhaps John Waters, and he's maybe a bit friendly.

If you've read the book and ever watched a Cronenburg film, you're eyes just bugged out and jaw dropped at the idea of it, right?

If not, why not? The book is sparklingly brilliant, awful, nasty, wicked and beautiful. The work of a genius.

This book is not easy to read if your idea of reading is that it has a linear plot, characters that are either good, bad or somewhere in between, spirit-uplifting narratives and dialogues and inspiring theme.

This book has none of those. Yet, this is one of the best-written books that I've ever read. Reading this was just a different experience: you don't know where Burroughs would take you every time you lift the page, you don't know who would appear as the characters and what they would say or This book is not easy to read if your idea of reading is that it has a linear plot, characters that are either good, bad or somewhere in between, spirit-uplifting narratives and dialogues and inspiring theme.

Reading this was just a different experience: you don't know where Burroughs would take you every time you lift the page, you don't know who would appear as the characters and what they would say or do, you don't know how he could write with brilliant originality and fluidity.

It is like being taken for a ride but you know that the ride would be simply a memorable one because you gasp as you go through each line of this book.

Yes, it is about drugs marijuana, heroin, morphine , sex, crime, pedophilia, sadism and all the monstrosities that you can think of as a normal human being.

Their subjects are all monstrous but the writings are unparalleled and unequaled. This is postmodern and thus hard to understand.

The trick is for you to just read and let the words wash over you and somewhere in the middle of your reading you will start to get the drift until you find yourself marching with the grove and then you will find it unputdownable.

The plot is fragmented that makes it not really a plot but a collection of short stories or even hallucinations there is no story, like your "typical" story.

It has some characters that appear in more than one instance like the Agent William Lee , the pirate AJ or the doctor Benjay.

But their characters are not developed just like in most novels. You just have to take them as they are.

There is also some kind of political undertones in some of the stories that reminded me of George Orwell's 4 stars but it feels like just a side dish and not the main course.

Being an artist belonging to the Beat generation, this book also reminded me of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

This book also surprised me a bit: it is rare that I like a book with zero relatability to me. I mean, I had no experience whatsoever with any prohibited drugs and still I found this book amazing.

It used to be that I would only like books that speak to me. Maybe my literary taste is maturing since I am in my fourth year of voracious reading.

Thank you, Goodreads. My second Burroughs and he is still to disappoint. In fact, he, for me, is one of the best American novelists.

This was freakishly amazing, simultaneously making me wish I was on a full H binge with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas , Infinite Jest , and a whole slew of Stephen King books to cap off this horrific tome of pure poetry.

And still absolutely harrowing today.

Naked Lunch tips the reader right off a cliff into the deep end of an Heroin Dream, starting us right at the gross end of bodies breaking down, moving on to like Reconditioning Centers for total mental reprogramming, thank you very much, and then moving into the skull of a paranoid delusional fever dream of homosexuality and then alien societies.

If I could pick all of the heaviest hot-topics of the day and cram them all together into the heaviest fever pitch of a "normal's" fear, paranoia, misconceptions, and conspiracy theories, making the prose into a Beat-Poetry slam, and then fearlessly drowning the reader in jizz, then this is the book I'd point to as the poster child of all the books that would come after.

Whole horror genres have spawned off of this book in the 80's. Talking assholes? A man who stole an opium suppository from his own grandmother's ass?

Spontaneous liquefaction of bodies as a bug's-eye view of our modern society? This stuff is RICH. It's also disgusting. Hats off.

Total Respect. Even if it's an enormously wild button-pusher, it's not like it's un-factual. The drugs are real. The lives of homosexuals were probably quite real for the day and age.

The explosion of the importance and the wild revelry makes these things into a realm of All-Importance in this novel, though, making it at first horrifying, then surreal, and then almost pure science fiction.

Perfect for the feels, NOT the camp. I got scared. View all 4 comments. Feb 14, Ivy rated it did not like it Recommends it for: people who are into this sort of thing.

And then, at the request of my old man who was sick of hearing me complain and puzzle over this book, I put it down for good. I don't like to leave books unfinished, but a girl can only swallow so many reiterations of the same tired orgiastic death-by-hanging scenario before she puts her foot down and says NO MORE!

I almost liked the bo I made it just a little bit past the passage mentioning Steely Dan the dildo actually, it's three generations of dildos all thriving under the Steely Dan name.

I almost liked the book for this over-the-top ghastliness alone. Complex, acrobatic sex scenes abound, and there's something charming about the way it just gets nastier and nastier until the outlandishness of the unending orgies becomes laughable.

But the redundancy of the themes and prose eventually became cloying. For example, Burroughs used the phrase "cancelled eyes" conspicuously often.

While it's an apt enough way to describe the expression of someone floating through a drug haze, his overuse of the term struck me as a little too self-congratulatory, as if he was thinking, "Burroughs, you magnificent bastard!

What a clever turn of phrase! Do it again! On the whole or, rather, on the half, since that's all I finished , reading Naked Lunch was like listening to someone tell you their weird dream from last night.

Vaguely interesting, especially when it makes narrative sense, but, as it drones on, too zanily bizarre to keep my attention.

Mar 29, Matt rated it it was amazing. What can you say about Uncle Bill that hasn't already been said? I know that there was an obscenity trial over this book back in the day, but it still amazes me that he wasn't killed by an angry mob in the streets.

Remember this was published in an America that didn't allow married couples on television shows to sleep in the same bed or use the word "pregnant".

The text is obviously extremely disturbing. Make no mistake, reading this book is an endurance test. If you make it through you will fee What can you say about Uncle Bill that hasn't already been said?

If you make it through you will feel like you have tainted your soul forever. It reads as if the author had a Harvard education and a severe drug problem, which was the reality for Burroughs at this point in time.

However, I am of the opinion that almost every sub-genre of fiction since can be traced back to Burroughs. What the Beatles are to rock music, he is to literature.

He is one of those bad news guys for aspiring writers. The reason for this is that any crazy scenario or plot twist that we can think of, he has already weighed, tested, and shotgunned sometime between the 's to mid's.

I usually hate movies based on books that I have read, but this movie can almost be seen as a supplement to the book.

It hits the major points of the book, but also fills in the background of what was going on in Burroughs life during the writing of the book in a very Surrealistic fashion.

I kind of detest Burroughs for his abuse of boys in Morocco, but his writing was influential and quite a trip to read.

This particular book - one of his most famous - is a druggy trip from the US to Mexico. It is sort of On the Road but taking about 10x more mescaline and cocaine and acid than Kerouac and his friends did.

If you want to get a feeling for the crazy off the rails atmosphere of the 60s, this is the book for you. Mar 09, Arthur Graham rated it really liked it.

I'd love to rate this one higher, but however groundbreaking it was at the time, I always felt that Burroughs went on to produce much better books.

It still has one of the most apt titles ever. Contrary to what the small-minded prudes who brought the obscenity case against it assumed, this book has nothing to do with some lewd midday meal.

Instead, the reader is forced to eat the truth, finally seeing "what is on the end of that long newspaper spoon.

I also admit I don't think I fully understand what William S. Burroughs tried to tell us, and some parts of the story really tend to drag on and on for no good reason.

The whole story reads like a series of junkie's nightmarish, incoherent drug trips or a really messed up hard-boiled thriller, a lot of sex, violence, drug and even murder and sexual abuse.

A lot of dark fantasies concerning gay men and boys. Some parts of the story even read like cyberpunk, but I admit not everyone will like this book.

In my opinion, the movie really does the nearly-impossible by giving a story and a context to a text which has no story and nearly no context.

PS: so aside from drugs and homosexuality, the story is also about conspiracy and mind control? Wow, my mind is blown! PSS: in recent weeks there are a handful of people liking this review!

Jul 04, Michael Kneeland rated it really liked it. I'm not an uber beat generation guru, but I'm fairly certain that Naked Lunch is the final destination to the journey started by Jack Kerouac in On the Road.

It is very rhythmic try reading it out loud but also incredibly stream-of-conscious, much more so than Kerouac's novel and he can get pretty damn stream-of-conscious.

This novel depicts the life if you want to call it that of a junkie in the '60s who travels from America to Mexico and finally lands [halfway across the globe] in Ta I'm not an uber beat generation guru, but I'm fairly certain that Naked Lunch is the final destination to the journey started by Jack Kerouac in On the Road.

This novel depicts the life if you want to call it that of a junkie in the '60s who travels from America to Mexico and finally lands [halfway across the globe] in Tangier.

He is helplessly and carelessly addicted to several drugs, notably heroin and morphine. He will rip off just about anyone just to score.

And he's reckless. Shamelessly reckless. So why did I give this novel four stars? Because, through all the craziness and chaos of the novel's narration, there is a lucidly clear depiction of alienation and loneliness in the modern world.

The novel's main character, William Lee though we might as well call him William S. Burroughs , is chased by the police, drug dealers, and even a "notorious liquifactionist" from the Interzone you know where that is, right?

He is not safe or sound anywhere, not even alone with himself. He is literally apart from society. And what is the root of his painful alienation?

Well he is, of course. Who else was the cause of their own alienation? Like "William Lee," each of these characters shows us just how human it is to paradoxically crave acceptance into society while we simultaneously push ourselves away.

Being a human can sometimes suck big time, and Naked Lunch depicts this unabashedly. And nakedly. Oct 09, Hunter rated it really liked it Recommends it for: The few, the brave, and those eager to know where Steely Dan got their name.

This book makes no sense, not that it matters. Burroughs wrote it over the course of a year in a one-room apartment over a Moroccan male brothel, strung out on heroin.

What resulted is a disturbing, satirical, bitter flood of images. To call it a meditation or a portrait doesn't do it justice: "Naked Lunch" is the lifeblood of a dying mind.

It is a collection of vaguely-linked scenes, images, and flash pieces some humor, some horror, some pornography.

As you might expect, it drags in places, bu This book makes no sense, not that it matters. As you might expect, it drags in places, but some of the imagery is so dementedly brilliant that it deserves to be read.

Besides, if you get too tired of it, you can always mark your place and come back to it in a year. Don't worry--it'll make as little sense as it did before.

Nov 13, Kathryn rated it really liked it Shelves: drugs , classics. I'm thinking about it still, at least overnight.

God, I hope this doesn't intrude on my dreams As far as I can tell, Naked Lunch is a series of drug related or induced experiences.

My thoughts at the beginning of this book were variations of "I hate this. Why am I reading this. I kept putting the book down but would pick it up rather quickly thereafter out of curiosity.

Creepy, trippy, and unnecessary, the words sucked me in, to this awful place where Burroughs twisted words and facts and made drugs interesting and disturbing and not the slightest bit real or frightening.

And that is my problem with this book. I was unable to relate in the slightest. Were there even true characters in this book? Evil things happen within and I found it to be an unrealistic fantasy.

I read to see what crazy or disgusting thing would happen next. I found myself thinking how certain bits must have really riled up the censoring supporting public at the time of publication.

My copy includes quite a bit extra about the banning of the book, the authors who testified in support of the book, court testimony, the book's literary worth.

I can see that worth, though it took a little. There are scenes that should be more disturbing than they were but since I felt so distanced from the book, any bit of reality hiding in the pages was lost on me.

I feel as though I should not be able to offer a proper opinion unless I read through the book again. And Burroughs, what a walking drug encyclopedia!

Part of me thinks that you either have to be on one of the drugs mentioned within, have an extensive and impressive grasp of the English language be honest now , an unenvious ability to overly empathize with a story, or a drug history comparable to Burroughs himself in order to fully appreciate or relate to this book.

Considering Naked Lunch and Fear and Loathing, the latter was at least funny at times, and completely coherent in comparison.

Naked Lunch was not very funny. Yet I love that these types of books get under the skin. I think it is good for people to have their sensibilities ruffled, at the very least lightly stepped upon.

Naked Lunch is more along the lines of stomping and then tossing a bunch of sandbags on those sensibilities. View all 7 comments. Apr 19, Inder rated it did not like it Shelves: books , 20th-century , fiction.

I'm sure this is very brilliant and all, but it's extremely unpleasant to read. Physically repulsive, it's enough to scare anyone away from heroin, and yet, in some ways, it glorifies the experience in a self-indulgent way.

Mind you, the book has no plot, and is just one drug-induced hallucination after another. It gets pretty boring after a while.

Even extreme disgust gets old after about 50 pages. You're so numb after a few pages that Burrough's attempts to get nastier and nastier and sho Ugh.

You're so numb after a few pages that Burrough's attempts to get nastier and nastier and shock more and more are mostly lost. I'm still trying to figure out the literary value of stuff like this.

Any English profs out there care to explain why this made it into the canon? I ask this in all seriousness - I really can't figure it out.

Maybe it does belong on the list - in which case, I want to know the purpose of such lists. I don't feel like I read this so much as survived it.

You can bet I will not be reading the other two Burroughs novels on the books list. What do they take me for, some kind of masochist?

So that means I only have to read books, which is fine by me. Though I have a feeling that a couple of others on the list are going to turn me off in the same way.

I guess this is one you're supposed to read in the interests of being engaged in pop and drug culture, but my rec?

Stay away. You don't want to be this engaged. Apr 22, Lyn rated it it was ok. Burroughs is a corrosive mash-up of Hunter S.

Thompson, George Carlin and a hoarse whisper of Jim Morrison, and the good doctor Thompson no doubt kept a volume of Burroughs on his desk between the dictionary and the thesaurus.

Wake up Charles Bukowski at noon, scrape him off the floor of an Oakland flophouse, feed him, sober him cold, clean him up with a shower and shave and tailor a nice suit around him and you APPROACH the simmering rage of Burroughs, the feral, haunted shot of moral depravity that he summons up from the locked up basements of our collective soul.

But then consider that this was published in and the depth of the virulent impact on our literary culture begins to take shape.

If Burroughs was not the original anti-hero, he was at least its dark robed disciple and if not a voice crying out in the wilderness, he was a raspy wheeze coughing up a bawdy limerick in a back alley.

Glad I did, because looking back on the rubbish heap climbed reveals a depth of thought and a sensitive, tortured beauty, like a wildflower sprouting up from amidst the bones of a carcass.

All that said, it is still a profane, ugly book. Not for the squeamish. May 03, Ryan Leone rated it did not like it.

I shot heroin for a decade, and at the time, I had this wrongful solidarity towards the culture and arts that surrounded it.

My first exposure to Burroughs was the novel Junky - a trashy pulp book with a thin plot. Even at 19, a period when starring at my tennis shoes for multiple hours at a time entertained me, I found no enjoyment from this man's prose.

Fast forward about 6 years, I'm in the middle of a long federal prison stretch, my literary receptors have become more pronounced.

I'm getting I shot heroin for a decade, and at the time, I had this wrongful solidarity towards the culture and arts that surrounded it.

I'm getting through long-winded books like Infinite Jest, War and Peace, etc. The following is a summary of some of the events in the book that could be considered the most relevant.

The book begins with the adventures of William Lee also known as "Lee the Agent" , who is Burroughs' alter ego in the novel. His journey starts in the U.

There are short chapters describing the different characters he travels with and meets along the way.

Eventually he gets to Mexico where he is assigned to Dr. Benway; for what, he is not told. Benway appears and he tells about his previous doings in Annexia as a "Total Demoralizator.

Here, some new characters are introduced, such as Clem, Carl, and Joselito. A short section then jumps in space and time to a marketplace.

The Black Meat is sold here and compared to "junk", i. The action then moves back to the hospital where Benway is fully revealed as a manipulative sadist.

Time and space again shift the narrative to a location known as Interzone. Hassan, one of the notable characters of the book and "a notorious liquefactionist", is throwing a violent orgy.

AJ crashes the party and wreaks havoc, decapitating people and imitating a pirate. Hassan is enraged and tells AJ never to return, calling him a "factualist bitch," a term which is enlarged much later when the apparently "clashing" political factions within Interzone are described.

These include the Liquefactionists, the Senders, the Factualists, and the Divisionists who occupy "a midway position".

A short descriptive section tells of Interzone University, where a professor and his students are ridiculed; the book moves on to an orgy that AJ throws.

The book then shifts back to the market place and a description of the totalitarian government of Annexia. Characters including the County Clerk, Benway, Dr.

Berger, Clem and Jody are sketched through heavy dialogue and their own sub-stories. After the description of the four parties of Interzone, we are told more stories about AJ.

After briefly describing Interzone, the novel breaks into sub-stories and heavily cut-up influenced passages.

In a sudden return to what seems to be Lee's reality, two police officers, Hauser and O'Brien, catch up with Lee, who kills both of them.

Lee then goes out to a street phone booth and calls the Narcotics Squad, saying he wants to speak to O'Brien. A Lieutenant Gonzales on the other end of the line claims there's no one in their records called O'Brien.

When Lee asks for Hauser instead, the reply is identical; Lee hangs up, and goes on the run once again. The book then becomes increasingly disjointed and impressionistic, and finally simply stops.

Naked Lunch is considered Burroughs' seminal work. Extremely controversial in both its subject matter and its use of obscene language something Burroughs recognized and intended , the book was banned in Boston and Los Angeles in the United States, [9] [10] and several European publishers were harassed.

The book was banned in Boston in due to obscenity notably child murder and acts of pedophilia , making it among the last works to be banned in that city, but that decision was reversed in by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

The hearing included testimony in support of the work by Allen Ginsberg and Norman Mailer. Sections of the manuscript were published in the Spring edition of Robert Creeley 's Black Mountain Review [14] and in the Spring edition of the University of Chicago student-run publication Chicago Review.

The student edition was not well received, and caused the university administration to discuss the future censorship of the Winter edition of the publication, resulting in the resignation of all but one of the editors.

On a more specific level, Naked Lunch also protests the death penalty. Fans of Beat Generation literature, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker named the band Steely Dan after a "revolutionary" steam-powered dildo mentioned in the novel.

From the s, numerous film-makers considered adapting Naked Lunch for the screen. Antony Balch , who worked with Burroughs on a number of short film projects in s, considered making a musical with Mick Jagger in the lead role, but the project fell through when relationships soured between Balch and Jagger.

In May , rather than attempting a straight adaptation, Canadian director David Cronenberg took a few elements from the book and combined them with elements of Burroughs' life, creating a hybrid film about the writing of the book rather than the book itself.

Italian comics artist Gianluca Lerici, better known under his artistic pseudonym Professor Bad Trip, adapted the novel into a graphic novel titled Il Pasto Nudo , published by Shake Edizioni.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the book.

Beide extrem im Drogenrausch. Sonst müsste man sich ja umbringen. Intellektueller Schlag gegen die Dominanzkultur. Das dann irgendwie zu 'Naked Lunch' wurde. Immer verzweifelt, nie entmutigt. Und am Ende war sein Mund vollkommen versiegelt. Stilistisch nicht brillant, aber bestechend genau beobachtet. Es geht nur mühsam voran, die Aufnahmen zu "Songs For The Exhausted" ziehen sich ein Jahr lang hin, und es dauert noch mal mehr als ein Jahr, bis sich eine Plattenfirma findet, die noch einmal auf Naked Lunch learn more here.

A young woman develops a taste for human blood after experimental plastic surgery, and her victims turn into blood-thirsty zombies, leading into a city-wide epidemic.

Not an adaptation of beat writer William S. Burrough's novel but a mix of biography and an interpretation of his drug- induced writing processes combined with elements of his work in this paranoid fantasy about Bill Lee, a writer who accidentally shoots his wife, whose typewriter transforms into a cockroach and who becomes involved in a mysterious plot in North African port called Interzone.

Wonderfully bizarre, not unlike Burrough's books. Lots of people will hate this film, and some will love it. The bottom line is, if you enjoy, respect, or feel that you understand the work of William S.

Burroughs, you should see this film. If you don't know what I am talking about, you should probably not see this film. The following pedantic and potentially inflammatory review, like this film, pulls no punches and makes no apologies for itself.

Read on if you dare. Burroughs is widely regarded as one of America's greatest writers of fiction.

He provides highly tactile ironic, seductively repulsive descriptions of the everyday which are at once accurate, fragmented and surreal - in other words - Burroughs recreates the feeling and mood of his time and his experience with hermeneutic precision.

Cronenberg's Naked Lunch is an amalgamation of Cronenberg's interpretation and experience of reading Burroughs, Burroughs own life, and Burrough's legendary novel, Naked Lunch.

There are six or more plots operating in six or more interacting layers throughout the film, and the action centers exclusively on Burrough's alter-ego, Bill Lee, as he attempts to discover the relationships between all of these plots.

It is a very self-conscious, personal, brilliantly developed and visually intense film. Yet, despite its self-exposure and openness, the film maintains a certain distance from its audience, as if it has taken on the life given it by Cronenberg and Burroughs and established its own unique personality, which will keep its audience at a certain distance.

To really appreciate this, you must watch the film at least a few times. It is especially significant that Burroughs gave his approval for this project.

Burroughs' writing is intensely personal and artistic, and his willingness to allow Cronenberg to position himself and his experience of Burrough's work within the film, and to decenter Naked Lunch is as powerful a testimony to Burrough's own integrity as an artist as it is to Cronenberg's vision.

Most of the people who acted in this film really wanted to be involved in it and it shows. Ian Holm and Roy Scheider are always great.

Peter Weller, a big Burroughs fan and a severely underrated actor gives what may be the performance of his lifetime, Judy Davis and Julian Sands are both perfectly cast and powerful in their roles.

This films imagery is necessarily disturbing, disorienting, and, at times, quite comic. Very much in keeping with the feel of Burrough's work.

The Black Meat is sold here and compared to "junk", i. The action then moves back to the hospital where Benway is fully revealed as a manipulative sadist.

Time and space again shift the narrative to a location known as Interzone. Hassan, one of the notable characters of the book and "a notorious liquefactionist", is throwing a violent orgy.

AJ crashes the party and wreaks havoc, decapitating people and imitating a pirate. Hassan is enraged and tells AJ never to return, calling him a "factualist bitch," a term which is enlarged much later when the apparently "clashing" political factions within Interzone are described.

These include the Liquefactionists, the Senders, the Factualists, and the Divisionists who occupy "a midway position".

A short descriptive section tells of Interzone University, where a professor and his students are ridiculed; the book moves on to an orgy that AJ throws.

The book then shifts back to the market place and a description of the totalitarian government of Annexia. Characters including the County Clerk, Benway, Dr.

Berger, Clem and Jody are sketched through heavy dialogue and their own sub-stories. After the description of the four parties of Interzone, we are told more stories about AJ.

After briefly describing Interzone, the novel breaks into sub-stories and heavily cut-up influenced passages.

In a sudden return to what seems to be Lee's reality, two police officers, Hauser and O'Brien, catch up with Lee, who kills both of them.

Lee then goes out to a street phone booth and calls the Narcotics Squad, saying he wants to speak to O'Brien.

A Lieutenant Gonzales on the other end of the line claims there's no one in their records called O'Brien. When Lee asks for Hauser instead, the reply is identical; Lee hangs up, and goes on the run once again.

The book then becomes increasingly disjointed and impressionistic, and finally simply stops. Naked Lunch is considered Burroughs' seminal work.

Extremely controversial in both its subject matter and its use of obscene language something Burroughs recognized and intended , the book was banned in Boston and Los Angeles in the United States, [9] [10] and several European publishers were harassed.

The book was banned in Boston in due to obscenity notably child murder and acts of pedophilia , making it among the last works to be banned in that city, but that decision was reversed in by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

The hearing included testimony in support of the work by Allen Ginsberg and Norman Mailer. Sections of the manuscript were published in the Spring edition of Robert Creeley 's Black Mountain Review [14] and in the Spring edition of the University of Chicago student-run publication Chicago Review.

The student edition was not well received, and caused the university administration to discuss the future censorship of the Winter edition of the publication, resulting in the resignation of all but one of the editors.

On a more specific level, Naked Lunch also protests the death penalty. Fans of Beat Generation literature, Donald Fagen and Walter Becker named the band Steely Dan after a "revolutionary" steam-powered dildo mentioned in the novel.

From the s, numerous film-makers considered adapting Naked Lunch for the screen. Antony Balch , who worked with Burroughs on a number of short film projects in s, considered making a musical with Mick Jagger in the lead role, but the project fell through when relationships soured between Balch and Jagger.

In May , rather than attempting a straight adaptation, Canadian director David Cronenberg took a few elements from the book and combined them with elements of Burroughs' life, creating a hybrid film about the writing of the book rather than the book itself.

Italian comics artist Gianluca Lerici, better known under his artistic pseudonym Professor Bad Trip, adapted the novel into a graphic novel titled Il Pasto Nudo , published by Shake Edizioni.
