About this title


Peter Guralnick reconstructs the early years in the life of Elvis Presley, giving us a fresh, realistic look at Elvis through the first twenty-four years of his life. Filled with great stories, Guralnick takes us from Elvis' humble beginnings, through his teen years to his first recordings with Sam Phillips and sudden fame and wealth. This volume closes with Elvis, in uniform, burying his mother.


There's no mention of sequins, drugs, or peanut butter in this understated biography of the teenaged Elvis, a serious and worthy attempt to answer the question, "Who was this guy before he was an icon, the voice of a generation, the King?" The essential clarity and honesty of Guralnick's prose clearly limns the eager, malleable boy whose immense talent changed the course of American music.
