Rock legend Jim Morrison put it this way: “This is the strangest life I’ve ever known.”
Hunter author William Lane relates deeply to these words, which Morrison sings in the track, "Waiting for the Sun." Lane, who has published three novels, finds the world very strange. “I love that line from the Doors’ song,” Lane says.
There’s another link between Morrison and Lane. The Doors’ singer was known as “the Lizard King”. Lane’s latest book is titled The Salamanders. Salamanders are amphibians, with lizard-like qualities.
