Love Him Madly : An Intimate Memoir of Jim Morrisonby Unknown
Chicago Review Press
Chronicling a young woman's four-year relationship with the lead singer of the Doors, this intensely intimate memoir provides a direct and unprecedented view of the late-'60s Los Angeles subculture. When Judy Huddleston's parents got divorced, she spent her last year of high school attending concerts. Transformed from a perceptive child into a rebellious teenager bent on attracting boys and fueled by psychedelics, she had lost her sense of self. That's when Jim Morrison came into her life. Honest, funny and direct, Huddleston provides an emotional portrayal of an unbalanced sexual relationship with a man whose demons haunted everyone he knew, while offering an even-handed portrait of Jim as a complex human being. Written in the idealistic and simultaneously jaded voice of a teenager, this is a tale of sex, codependence, misplaced spirituality, and an unforgettable fall from innocence.
