William Burroughs - The Gathering
He came back to the States and had many part time jobs. The one that the only one he seemed to like was being a bug exterminator in Chicago.
He hunged a lot of the time with David Kammerer and Lucien Carr but in 1944, Burroughs began living with Joan Vollmer Adams in an apartment they shared with Jack Kerouac and Edie Parker, Kerouac's first wife.
It is at this time that the initial group of friends, William Burroughs, Allan Gynsberg and Jack Kerouac started to socialize the most.
