About this title


A long-time confidante of Elvis reveals intimate details of the legendary performer's dreams and disillusionments, showing his disintegration due to drugs and the harm to which he subjected himself

From School Library Journal:

YA-- A biography of Elvis Presley which, the authors claim, was largely overseen by Presley himself. Geller, Presley's hairdresser, who describes himself as a confidant and spiritual advisor to the late singer, kept a diary that is the basis for this book. The biography is easily read, evenhanded, straightforward, unapologetic, and seemingly unbiased. The material is treated with care, thought, and cool reason. Elvis fans will find the book a curiosity, appealing in many ways. The people described are at once naive and licentious. There is a dedication to excellence in musical performance and hairdressing coupled with a chilling absence of discipline in almost any other aspect of living. Puritanical attitudes live side-by-side with sensual gratifications, including gluttony, greed, and lust. The incredible career of Elvis Presley will capture the interest of secondary students, for the legendary star was and continues to be a figure in American life. The book's most valuable asset may be the honesty with which the authors describe a bizarre way of life, destroyed by excessive quantities of money, ignorance, and foolishness.
