A “Must Read” For Doors Fans., April 6, 2008
By M.E.W. “MEW” (California)

Reading “I Remember” you sense you have been privileged to be sitting in a cozy living room, after a family holiday meal, listening to the stories and memories of relatives past and present, being told by those who were actually there to experience them.

With this new book, Alan Graham doesn’t purport to offer yet another “know-all, tell-all” exposé of some famous character who is no longer present to speak to the validity of the events. Instead, Graham relates, with no pretentiousness, the sometimes funny, sometimes poignant personal association with Jim Morrison.

If you’re looking for sensationalism, Grahams book will not satiate your curiosity. However, if you want to experience the true dynamic of the real Morrison, you won’t be disappointed by Graham’s personal revelations.

The stories Graham presents read like a stream of consciousness, but streaming from a sane and stable mind with no personal agenda. “I Remember” allows the reader a personal insight into the real life of the legend. Alan Graham’s style is both candid and sophisticated while remaining ingenuous. He is able to draw out philosophical and psychological essentialities that were Jim Morrison.

Reading Alan Graham’s new book gives you the sense that you have had an intimate glimpse into the life of the Lizard King, told by a family member who was actually there to experience it.
