Editorial Reviews

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.--John Lawson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
