Why read it?

1 author picked No One Here Gets Out Alive as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This was the book that inspired me to start writing. It’s a page-turning bio of the short life and very fast times of Jim Morrison from The Doors, and it made me realise you could write about music without resembling some giddy fanboy — Morrison comes off as a rock and roll poet and a drunken bozo. It rates with the best biographies I’ve read, regardless of topic or genre.

From Jeff's list on rock and roll.
