Junkie, Junkey... An Interview With William Burroughs
Jeffrey Morgan, Creem, April 1978
"I WAS AROUND people who were using it. Then I started, you know, taking an occasional shot. It is, for most people, I think, a very pleasurable experience. After I'd had these experiences as an addict — I guess it was in 1950 — I was living in Mexico City and someone suggested to me that I simply write up my experiences with heroin addiction, which I did. And that was my first book, Junkie."
