Lou Reed's Naked Lunch

"I first read it in college. A huge door opened in American letters, with Burroughs' subject matter and sense of humour and juxtaposition of images. It was a savaging of right-wing, straight-laced, average America. I don't think anyone could read it, and take that stuff seriously again."
-Lou Reed, commenting on William Burroughs' Naked Lunch
