Abstract:

Elvis is, and always will be, The King. Even as he (probably) lies in his grave at Graceland, he lives on in his music, his movies, on the Vegas stage, through the U.S. Mail, and on these pages. Mondo Elvis is a compilation of Elvis dreams, Elvis desires, and Elvis nightmares. This collection of stories and poems by, among others, Greil Marcus, Nick Cave, Mark Childress, Diane Wakoski, and Janice Eidus, track the Elvis legend from beginning to end. They depict Elvis the man, as well as the myth, they reflect on the life that was, and ponder the life that might have been. Elvis will never die. We can't let him. We need him too much.
