William Burroughs - Back in Tanger ( The Naked Lunch comes to light)

Back in Tangiers, he was now able to focus on writing. Soon he was back on drugs, and some decadence periods came by. At this time his writing was his “way to escape reality”. Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and Peter Orlovsky used to visit him constantly, helping him with his work. From constant drug use to intense writing the “Naked Lunch” (Burroughs most known work) was born.
