An unfinished extension of "Junky", unpublished for 30 years. Follows Burrough's diffident relationship with a young drifter during his years in Mexico. Touches on the beginning of Burroughs' search for ayahuesca in the Amazon, and contains passages where he develops the paranoid-riff style of his later works.
