Published by John Calder UK 1st/1st 1963

Novel by the eminently well connected Glasgow born beat writer, which semi fictionalised his own time as a heroin addict and writer. The honest depiction of heroin addiction, drug use and sex provoked and outcry on it's publication in UK. Trocchi was put on trial, and a jury found against the publisher John Calder. In response Trocchi held a public burning of his own book.
