s the clear confusion and despondency Francie constantly holds in his mind about his position and worth in life, stemming from the fact that he is essentially living life in a dystopic bubble, in which the rest of society seem to be oblivious to it and only Francie is experiencing any repercussions. A constant theme in Naked Lunch is the thrill of being in situations of utmost chaos and absurdity.
