Other Information: Illustrated
Published In: United Kingdom, 01 January 2011
Jerry Hopkins s Elvis: A Biography was the first book on popular music to top the U.S. bestseller list, and its sequel was equally popular. Long out of print, both books, along with a wealth of exciting new interviews, are brought together in Elvis to form the most exhaustive account available of the King s life. Telling the complete story of Presley s rise and fall, from his poverty-stricken childhood in Tupelo through his musical development and emergence as pop s first superstar to his decline and death, the book explores Presley s singular appeal, his far-reaching influence, and his extraordinary legacy. Featuring newly published firsthand interviews with people close to Elvis including high school teachers, girlfriends, directors, agents, recording engineers, bodyguards, sidemen, karate instructors, medical professionals, and even his personal jeweler Elvis presents a comprehensive and amazingly intimate look at this cultural icon."

Reviews

"Jerry Hopkins was the first serious journalist to take Elvis seriously, writing the first biography. The Elvis bookshelf is crowded now, but don't let that put you off. This thoroughly revised and updated version of his two classic books deserves a shelf of its own." - Jann Wenner, founder and editor of "Rolling Stone" "Jerry Hopkins long ago established the ground rules for serious biographical consideration of Elvis Presley. With a rare combination of seat-of-the-pants reporting and thoughtful portraiture, he creates a richly nuanced picture of a world in flux, both for Elvis himself and for the broad range of humanity that was - and continues to be - so indelibly affected by his music." - Peter Guralnick, author of "Last Train to Memphis "and "Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley" "The book that Jim Morrison wanted to read. Jerry Hopkins retells the Elvis tale with both authority and compassion . . . Hopkins' tome remains one of the leaders in its field, non-hysterical but sensational enough in its own way, thoroughly researched and written in a manner that equates with all the best novels - 4 out of 5." -" Mojo"
