Christmas - William Burroughs - The Junky's Christmas
William Burroughs' centennial draws to a close but not without the necessary December treat of The Junky's Christmas.

This story originally appeared in the 1989 collection, Interzone and in the 1993 recording Sparse Ass Annie and Other Tales.
Burroughs' reading on that occasion serves as the narration for a film from the same year (directed by Nick Donkin and Melodie McDaniel and produced by Francis Ford Coppola), essentially claymation, but Burroughs appears in live-action footage and the beginning (with a book - those haunting facial close-ups!) and at the "banquet scene" at the end.
