The famed book author married his book agent and partner, Schelling, at the Staten Island Borough Hall on Monday, April 1st. The news was kept quiet until the couple’s brief wedding announcement appeared in The New York Times on Sunday. Burroughs was surprisingly mum on the topic, only mentioning it on Twitter and Facebook early Sunday morning. Congrats to the happy couple!

    It can’t be that “longtime”, considering Burroughs’ singleness in relatively recent autobiographical essays.

  • Allen D.

    You mean the “autobiographical” essays that many friends and family members say are “absolutely untrue”??? Shocking.

    Allen- Could you link to any stories about that? I was looking online, but I haven’t
    found anything.

    Viv- He talks about his partner in Possible Side Effects which is at least
    8 years old.

    @Belinda, yes, but they subsequently broke up.
