    EPUB ☆ MOBI Cain's Book î Paperback Cain's BookThis book wasn't at all what I expected Junkie lit no matter how good can't help being formulaic Those Mission Impossible episodes where Barnie play acts the sweat soaked terrors of withdrawal represents one end of the continuum French Connection 2 Panic in Needle Park Trainspotting the dirty cottons of William Burroughs' oeuvre and so on nod off along various parts of this continuum and we know every station of this cross It's part of our folklore I don't know exactly what the junkie is in our folklore literature but I do know he is a very important archetype I say 'he' because though the female of the species exists she has a different meaning that I haven't uite worked out Girls getting their own are rare in literature though in real life they are far efficient All this to say that junkie lit has certain elements in it that are as predictable as a Betty and Veronica comic An

    EPUB ☆ MOBI Cain's Book î Paperback Cain's BookThis is a book like no other with a writing so sharp a precise focus of details you weren't even aware about it's like Trocchi used a scalpel instead of a pen the acuity really astounding Having recently seen the movie Limitless it made me wonder if Trocchi had taken one of those little pills that expand your brain capacities in the movie This book certainly triggers something in your own brain whatever that is As far as the prose is concerned all the other books I've read lately suddenly feel like they were only just babbling filling up space tasteless pointless and as I read two books at once I could see all the things that weren't working in the other one—like I'd gained a new superpower which may or may not ruin my taste for other books This book reads like the insane train of thoughts of a madman the errand mind of a junkie but it's so much than a visceral ride
