An unemployed man receives a strange package of ancient manuscript fragments. Could these be the final insights for a spiritual transformation in human consciousness? The man sets out to find the answer. Driving south, he wanders into a mysterious diner on the outskirts of Memphis. There he meets Marie Ishmael, an aging waitress and fountain of Elvis trivia, who claims to have the final revelations about the meaning and life of Elvis Presley and the destiny of the universe. Marie uses dozens of biblical passages to prove her claim that Elvis will return! From Genesis to Revelations she cites chapter and verse to interpret Elvis. Marie shows how the tenth plague in Exodus predicted the death of the first born of Rock and Roll: Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper. She uses Revelations to match the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to the early heroes of Rock and Roll. The White Horseman is Elvis in his jumpsuits, the Black Horseman is Johnny Cash (who only wears black), the Green Horseman is Buddy Holly, and the Red Horseman is Chuck Berry. As Marie interprets the life of Elvis from womb to tomb she drops in details of her own life, including her ex-husbands: Bubba--a hockey player voted in high school as "Most Likely to Lose Teeth in an Altercation" and Dominick--a man so bizarre he received hate mail from Mother Teresa. Elvis and the Apocalypse is a satire lampooning Armageddon predications, New Age hopes, and Elvis fanaticism.
