Because They Don’t Sell Smack at Gristedes

williamburroughs1Literary Outlaws:  They’re just like us!  They shop for sundries!   Here is, purportedly, a grocery list of deceased author William S. Burroughs, which is being sold on eBay for around 500 bucks.  Cat food!  Waffles!  Vodka!  In the world of literary ephemera, it is hardly a window into the fractured mind of the author.  Why, this could very well be the shopping list of your neighbor, Mrs. Garfunkel, the one with the cats in apt. 5B.
