    schema:description ""In Jim Morrison, critically acclaimed journalist Stephen Davis brings together insights gleaned from dozens of original interviews, long-lost recordings, and Morrison's own unpublished journals to create a vivid portrait of a misunderstood genius. Davis looks behind the masks of the Lizard King and Mr. Mojo Risin' to reveal a man of fierce intelligence and poetic ambition who was tortured by inner demons that controlled his creative furies and drove him to confrontation and self-destruction. Each page brims with new details that yield fresh perspective on every phase of Morrison's life, from his troubled youth in a strict military household to his coming of age in the avant-garde scene of 1960s L.A. to the tense atmosphere surrounding the Doors as their songs rocketed to the top of the charts - when Morrison's increasingly fractious relations with his bandmates, his epic alcohol and drug binges, and desperate, tumultuous sexual affairs (with both women and men) reached their frenzied peak."@en ;
