Burroughs' first published novel, semi-autobiographical and focusing on his life as an addict and small-time heroin pusher. New York: Ace Books, 1953. A very good copy. Pictorial wraps remain bright and vivid with no creasing to spine. Light shelfwear and rubbing to extremities, with a small crease to top corner of Junkie cover and a larger one to the verso. Price blacked out on verso. Binding is tight, sturdy and square, with typical tanning to pages. Overall, a really quite nice copy. Rare.
