Overview

Love Him Madly: An Intimate Memoir of Jim Morrison by Judy Huddleston

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-1960s 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, obsession, misplaced spirituality, and an unforgettable fall from innocence.

Love Him Madly Do you remember the rock star that lit your imagination with an endless stream of what ifs and I wonder...... That cloud of infatuation could fill all life's vacuums and bridge any chasm in your young life. But the lights did come up and fantasy dissolved into the reality of the moment. So what happens if you cross the line from fantasy to reality? Judy Huddleston did, with the mercurial Jim Morrison. Love Him Madly sheds light into what a relationship with icon Jim Morrison was actually like. Her story is told with no frills honesty. Thank you! It's poignant, provocative, intimate, fragile.... The writing is vivid and often explicit. Based on Judy Huddleston's journals we've a sketch that will elicit every emotion from the reader. I guarantee that..... As another reviewer noted: with the voice of a rebellious teenager with tortured devotion, It's a tale of sex, obsession, misplaced spirituality, and an unforgettable fall from innocence. Sue William Silverman says: Jim Morrison's life is well documented but Love Him Madly delves into the profound personal cost of standing too close to such an incandescent and unpredictable flame. ----------- I can't begin to portray the intensity of Judy's story. I just don't have the words. You'll experience that intensity in your reading. 4.5 stars
