William Burroughs - From New York to Kansas

As New York started do get too expensive for him, he started looking for a cheapest place to stay. In late 1981 he moved back to Kansas City area (where he originates from.)
Between 1981 and 1997, Burroughs published over 30 books.

He invented "shotgun" art in this period. It was exactly what it sounds like. He would load one of his guns with a shell packed it with ink pigments and then blast the canvas.
