New York: Villard Books, 1988. Uncorrected Proof. Octavo, publisher's printed stiff paper wraps.
"Listen, real poetry doesn't say anything, it just ticks off the possibilities. Opens all the doors. You can walk through any one that suits you." Uncorrected publisher's proof of Doors frontman and counterculture poster-boy Jim Morrison’s collection of posthumously published writings. Inspired by literary greats such as Arthur Rimbaud and William Blake, Morrison penned visionary and oftentimes enigmatic poetry during his tragically short-lived stint as the band’s lyricist and lead vocalist. This collection features many of his lost poems from the years 1966 until his death in 1971, along with other fragmentary writings, diary entries, travelogue excerpts, essays, and a "self-interview." Some soiling to wraps, creasing to first few leaves. Very good. Item #3107
