If you’re fucked up like me, you’ve read Naked Lunch [several times.] It has a permanent place on my bookshelf and will always be near and dear to my…veins. Burroughs is a legend and conversations about his work, his involvement in the literary scene as well as just exactly how much of all that shit is true is endlessly fascinating. If you’re looking for a reason to bone over books, look no further. Tonight, Amnesia has you covered with the Naked Lunch Redux, a gathering of local artists, writers, scholars and musicians will discuss the work in full length, as well as read excerpts. Amnesia seems like the perfect atmosphere, but, really, get a liquor license already, guys. I want a vodka and coke.
