In Elvis, the definitive work on the man and his career, noted music critic Dave Marsh delves into every aspect of Presley's life and art. Presley embodies the heart of American pop culture and Marsh looks at the music - from its roots in gospel and country to its revitalization of those forms. With compassion and penetrating insight, Marsh examines Elvis's trajectory - from poor country boy to superstar, from faded has-been to his triumphant comeback, and to his ultimate decline and tragic end.

Elvis Presley, the kid from Tupelo, Mississippi, who paid four dollars to press a demo record as a birthday present for his mom; Elvis Presley, the rock-and-roll pioneer whose pelvic gyrations drove his legions of fans wild and his outspoken critics crazy; Elvis Presley, the soldier, the husband and father, the movie star, and the legend. All of these images are collected by Dave Marsh in his aptly titled book Elvis. Conveying the human being behind the icon often proves a difficult task, but Marsh's text is rife with well-researched facts and insightful observations that, coupled with the rich collection of photographs they accompany, deepen readers' understanding and appreciation of the King. The index containing a comprehensive bibliography, discography, and filmography is a solid resource, making Marsh's Elvis as informative as it is entertaining.
