This website is about Elvis books – books on the life and work of Elvis Presley.
Elvis’ life was full of great stories – from rags to riches to decline and fall.
Presley sprang from a fascinating time and place in American history. Elvis helped spawn the dominant culture of the 20th century. He was the subject of numerous controversies. And he gave rise to a sub-cult of aficionados, impersonators and fanatics who ensure that Elvis is still ‘taking care of business’ well into his seventies.
You can argue that it’s the Elvis’ music that matters, not the life-story – and I’d be inclined to agree.
However, for those of us who aren’t from Memphis or Tupelo and who didn’t grow up in the 1950s I think there is a lot to learn from the Elvis books.
