By Dennis C. Jakob




Summer with Morrison, a new book by Dennis C. Jakob, explores the time in the singer’s life from film school at UCLA to the first stages of his fame. Jakob tells the story from a unique perspective, for he was Morrison’s roommate and fellow filmmaker for most of this period.

The book covers Morrison’s early relationship with the mysterious Mary Werbelow, his night-stalking forays into the dark corners of Venice, CA, his trips through Big Sur and down through Mexico, and covers the philosophical and literary influences that later surfaced in his music.

Summer with Morrison includes twenty-five never-before-seen photographs taken by the author, and a forward by respected LA poet (and Morrison’s fellow film-student) Michael C Ford.
