9780743486132: Elvis Presley: The Man. The Life. The Legend.

That voice, those eyes, that hair, the cars, the girls . . . Elvis Presley revolutionized American pop culture when, at the age of twenty-one, he became the world's first modern superstar. A Memphis Beau Brummel even before he found fame, Elvis had a personal style that, like his music, had such a direct impact on his audience that it continues to influence us to this day. Elvis Presley compellingly examines Elvis' life and style to reveal the generous, complex, spiritual man behind the fourteen-carat-gold sunglasses and answers the question, "Why does Elvis matter" "Elvis Presley is the greatest cultural force in the twentieth century" proclaimed Leonard Bernstein. By any measure, Presley's life was remarkable. From his modest beginnings in a two-room house to his meteoric rise to international fame, everything about his life - his outsized talent to his car collection - clamored for attention. And he got it; even today, Elvis continues to fascinate. Written with the assistance of Elvis Presley Enterprises, Pamela Clarke Keogh's biography draws on extensive research and interviews with Presley friends and family, among them Priscilla Presley, Joe Esposito, Jerry Schilling, Larry Geller, Bernard Lansky, famed Hollywood photographer Bob Willoughby, and designer Bill Belew. Offered access to the Graceland archives, the author considered thousands of images, selecting more than one hundred color and black-and-white photographs for this book, many of them rarely seen before. Both a significant biography of the greatest entertainer of our time and a provocative celebration of what Presley means to America today, Elvis Presley introduces the man behind the myth, a very human superstar beloved by millions.

From AudioFile:

Not just another Elvis biography, this work explores why the shy, young Southern singer won America's heart. Simply put, Elvis was cool before anyone knew what cool was. Anna Fields's energetic yet objective voice is an excellent fit. We sense the innocence of young Elvis and his unsophisticated family; through Fields we are introduced to young Priscilla, who surely didn't know what she was getting in to but became tough enough to handle it. Fields avoids a stereotypical Elvis impersonation but provides just a hint of his voice. Unfortunately, the listener misses the visuals: Elvis's instinct for flamboyant clothing and his passion for decorating Graceland cry out for photos. Too bad we can't see the pictures. N.M.C.
