Publisher's Summary

For more than three decades, while its writer's world fame increased, Queer remained unpublished because of its forthright depiction of homosexual longings. Set in the corrupt and spectral Mexico City of the '40s, Queer is the story of William Lee, a man afflicted with both acute heroin withdrawal and romantic and sexual yearnings for an indifferent user named Eugene Allerton. The narrative is punctuated by Lee's outrageous "routines" - brilliant comic monologues that foreshadow Naked Lunch - yet the atmosphere is heavy with foreboding.

Junky 2

Queer is a wonderful follow up to Junky. While not quite as biting as Junky, it still delivers that very Burroughs feeling. The narrator returns from Junky and does a wonderful job.

Thought this was a different Burroughs

I thought this was Burroughs that wrote other queer novels. This was painful! I can’t listen another second.
