Here’s an article about Burroughs having told a reporter once that he was content to live in Kansas.
He lived in Lawrence. I remember once going to Lawrence. Only once. I was living in Kansas City for a while before migrating to Canada, and drove out to Lawrence one evening to see a friend act in a play. The town was a college town, very lively. It thunderstormed so badly that night, however, that I didn’t think I’d make it home alive!
