Notes: This slip-cased edition offers the two volumes of arguably the first serious biography of Elvis Presley that refuses to dwell on his myth. Aiming instead to portray in vivid, dramatic terms the life and career of this outstanding artistic and cultural phenomenon, they draw together a plethora of documentary and interview material to create a coherent and narrative. The first volume, "Last Train to Memphis", covers Presley's stunning rise and ended with his departure for Germany and his mother's unexpected death in 1958, while "Careless Love" covers the great years of the 60s and the difficult, decadent later part of Elvis's life, up to its untimely end in 1977.
Description: 2 volumes : illustrations, portraits ; 24 cm
Other Titles: Careless love
Responsibility: Peter Guralnick.
