The Naked Lunch
Writing books is a great source for speaking up against government policies through the means of words; The Naked Lunch written by William S. Burroughs in the year 1991 does the same thing as it goes vocal against the death penalty. The novel’s main character William Lee happens to be a drug fiend adopting numerous aliases as he travels between Mexico and USA.

Burroughs brings the character of William Lee through his own personal experience pertaining to abuse & addiction of drugs the like of Morphine, Marijuana and Heroin. Not only notorious for talking about drugs in great detail, The Naked Lunch has faced criticism for including obscene elements of pedophilia and murdering children; the language of the text itself is considered to be indecent & abominable.
