Last Train To Memphis Reviews


A wonderful book...Guralnick gives us an Elvis of real flesh and blood...the richest and most detailed protrait of Presely we have ever had. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
Unrivalled...Elvis steps out of these pages, you can feel him breathe, this book cancels out all others - BOB DYLAN * Wonderful...Guralnick deserves to live in Graceland - RODDY DOYLE *
Last Train to Memphis is the first part of Peter Gurlanick's epic two-volume life of rock 'n * roll's founding father--and when no less an authority than Bob Dylan writes that "this book cancels out all others", you know Guralnick must be doing something right. Exhaustive and thorough, though always written from a sympathetic standpoint, this first *
Guralnick is a scrupulous biographer, now established as the definitive chronicler of the strange life and turbulent times of Elvis Presley; better still, his enthusiasm for Elvi s' music shines through on every page of the text. And in the end, after all * Patrick Humphries, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW *
