Because Junkies Celebrate Christmas Too…

In honor of the nation’s most celebrated holiday, I thought I’d post a rare Christmas special written specifically for junkies! William S. Burroughs narrates his own work in this short film which chronicles the life of junky who acts in stark contrast to the typical stereotype the world has put upon him.  Burroughs himself lived a life in stark contrast to the world’s definition of a junky, going on to achieve great literary acclaim, both publicly and critically, despite his often heavy use of opiates. So, in the spirit of brotherly love and peace on earth, I present William S. Burroughs’ “The Junky’s Christmas”, produced by Francis Ford Coppola  .
