William S. Boroughs was an American writer associated with the Beat generation. He was an opiate addict for nearly five decades and the condition significantly influence his works. In 1951, he shot and killed his wife during a drunken game in Mexico City. Borough only spent two weeks in prison after his brother bribed the Mexican officials and lawyers.
