I saw the movie, named "naked lunch".
I didn't know the title meaning and some dialogs such as:
no glot clom fliday
I search on the internet but I find nothing useful, to help.
Thanks to all.

Burroughs states in his introduction to his book that Jack Kerouac suggested the title. "The title means exactly what the words say: naked lunch, a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of every fork."

I haven't read the book for at least 40 years now, but 'no glot clom fliday' looks like vaudeville Chinese-English for 'I don't have to come Friday'. Or maybe 'clom' represents a noun.
Hi!
Thanks a lot for your answers.But unfortunately I don't understand : "a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of every fork". I already saw it but as I said, it's vague for me!

Thanks in advance
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Perhaps the language is too subtle for a learner. Literary language often is.

a frozen moment when everyone sees what is on the end of every fork = a very surreally naturalistic experience.
Yes! but maybe only for me Emotion: big smile

I think in Persian it's translated to " bare meal " !! it's odd!

Thank you so much...
It is just as odd in English, too. Avant-garde writers can be inscrutable.

Exactly! and sometimes, some translators, have no enough knowledge.
"No glot Come Fliday" is the result of a death and a huge bust that leads to the area being too hot for dealers...
so it goes that a chinese dealer says he "doesnt have any come back friday"
get it..?
Naked lunch is a collection of writings that took place over a period of years... these where mostly drug enduced hallucinations and wild interpretations of reality... Burroughs addiction to drugs (esp. heroin) is the driving force behind this book and if you read it knowing this you can see that he's showing extreme cases of addiction... wether its sex or drugs or power, he takes it to the next level... and shows a darker side of humanity that we try hard to keep from others.. so "NAKED LUNCH" is a view of everyones secret addictions out in the open for all to see... Now do you understand Jack Kerouac's statement...?
