Written in America while Trocchi was working on a scow on the Hudson River, Cain’s Book is an extraordinary autobiographical account about a junky’s life, and an honest, raunchy, eye-opening trip through hell. Probably the most famous novel about drug addiction and the hazards and excitements of an addict’s life after Burrough’s Naked Lunch, this modern classic – which was prosecuted in Britain for obscenity in 1965 – still shocks in its frankness and is relevant to this day.
