William Burroughs on abstract art

From Conrad Knickerbocker’s interview of William S. Burroughs in “The Art of Fiction No. 36” (The Paris Review: Fall 1965, No. 35):

INTERVIEWER: Therefore, you’re not upset by the fact that a chimpanzee can do an abstract painting?

BURROUGHS: If he does a good one, no.
