William Burroughs - The Doorway...

Burroughs later said that shooting Vollmer was a pivotal event in his life, and one which instigated his writing: "I am forced to the appalling conclusion that I would have never become a writer but for Joan's death...I live with the constant threat of possession, for control. So the death of Joan brought me in contact with the invader , the Ugly Spirit, and manoeuvred me into a life long struggle, in which I have had no choice except to write my way out."

Tearsheet from New York Daily News of September 8, 1951.
