Main character explicitly and graphically describes the use of heroin. One of the main themes is drug use/abuse/dealing.

The character removes limbs, as well as extremities like his ears and fingers, as a source of food out of desperation.

The character consumes his own flesh. It is a very prominent theme in the novella.

The main character is preparing to eat his own fingers at the end of the novella, describing the taste akin to "Ladyfinger" cakes.

There is no ghostly possession, but the main character is depicted as gradually becoming more mentally unsound and obsessed with consuming his own flesh.

Not a plane, but a boat sinks and results in lots of casualties.
