If NAKED LUNCH is one of your favorites from the Beat Generation, you MUST, MUST listen to this audio performance! Hallucinatory visions will fill listeners’ minds as narrator Mark Bramhall tells the maddeningly fragmented story of drug addict William Lee, who moves in and out of various states of consciousness as he flees the police, taking to the road and eventually landing in Mexico. Bramhall deftly delivers the nonlinear vignettes that comprise this basically plotless novel, creating a narrative drive that will keep listeners tuned in—and maybe even liking it. The only one who might have done a better job of narrating is Burroughs himself—also a talented reader—but why split hairs. L.P. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
