The Road of Excess: A History of Writers on Drugs

by

From the antiquity of "Homer" to yesterday's "Naked Lunch, " writers have found inspiration in a world of the imagination tinged and transformed by drugs. Drawing on history, science, biography, literary analysis, and ethnography, Boon shows that the concept of drugs is interdisciplinary and reveals how connections between disciplines configure each drug's unique history. 12 illustrations.
