Just some thoughts on this particular edition of Naked Lunch.
In a nutshell - it's wonderful. Hardback is housed in a handsome slipcase. (the photo Amazon has used is of the slipcase. The art on the book itself closely mirrors that of the usa 1st edition i.e. PERFECT!)
Page ends are black - Nice touch.
Contents wise we get - The restored text. And 100 + pages of extras inc assorted outtakes - Original introductions etc by Bill.
For a new edition - Grove press have done us proud - Any Bill fan should be very pleased to add this very fine volume to their collection and I should not at all be surprised if this version becomes a collectable in the future.
The novel itself? A work of art and a unique novel that is worth every ounce of it's reputation as being one of the most important/ landmark novels of the 20th century.
