About this title


THE AMERICAN NIGHT presents Morrison's previously unpublished work in its truest form. WIth their nightmarish images, bold associative leaps, and volcanic power of emotion, these works are the unmistakable artifacts of a great, wild voice and heart.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- After 20 years, interest in Jim Morrison and the Doors is still intense. American Night is cut from the same cloth as the controversial best seller Wilderness (Random, 1988). It contains a collection of lyrics or performance pieces from the Doors's albums, poems and aphorisms, and a rather trite screenplay. The poetry deals with such topics as love, sex, life, death, and religion. The writing is uneven, ranging from cliched, amateurish pieces to brilliant, poetic works abounding with sensual or surrealistic imagery. The book lacks the photos found in the first volume, but it has a nicer format, making it easier to keep each work separate.
