A balanced portrait of an unbalanced relationship, Love Him Madly brings readers on an intense, poetic journey through one teenage girl’s unforgettable fall from innocence with the help of the Doors’ front man.

“A poignant true story about a unique love affair, intimately told and wonderfully written, involving the legendary Jim Morrison."  —John Rechy, author, City of Night

Monterey, CA: It was 1967 in LA. Teenager Judy Huddleston’s parents had just gotten divorced and she began spending her last year of high school at rock concerts. Left wanting to transform herself during the drastic transition from the conservative rules of the 50s to the free ideologies of the 60s, Huddleston lost her sense of self—she began experimenting with psychedelic drugs and alcohol and sought the attention of boys her father never approved of. But that all changed when Jim Morrison stepped into her life.

Chronicling her four-year on-and-off relationship with the Doors’ front man, Love Him Madly: An Intimate Memoir of Jim Morrison (Chicago Review Press, June 2013) Judy Huddleston provides a direct and unprecedented view of the late 1960s subculture like never before. Written in the idealistically positive voice of a teenaged girl—some of the memories are taken from Huddleston’s diary at the time—Love Him Madly offers fans of Morrison an intimate look at the singer through his tumultuous sexual relationship with the young and jaded Huddleston while painting a portrait of a very complex human being. Judy’s misguided attempts to find her identity, truth and freedom in her ideal of a man was a product of her all-too-human hunger for love. In her eyes, Morrison was an incarnate god, an infallible creature who hid his true love for her. As Morrison pulled her into his life, he brought her deeper into her own obsession, quickly turning her dream world into madness.

A cautionary tale of sex, codependence and misplaced spirituality, Love Him Madly is a must-read for Jim Morrison fans, people curious about the late 60’s subculture in Los Angeles, and women interested in the sexual dynamic stemming from romantic obsession with one man.
