Queer allows the reader to experience life through the eyes of a homosexual drug addict. I found this book so captivating I was able to finish it in one night. In this book Burroughs exposes the secret world of homosexuals in a time when their lifestyle was thought by many to be criminal. This book also exposes the raw human emotions of one sided love affair between William Lee and his young traveling companion. Queer is a classic novel written in true Burroughs' style and welcomes the reader into the dark side of life.
