Reviews

"A triumph of biographical art...Profound and moving."--Stephen Wright, New York Times Book Review

"Altogether splendid...It is the particular and spectacular achievement of Last Train to Memphis that it holds both the making of the history and the beginning of the myth in firm, simple, and compassionate focus."--Jay Cocks, Time

"Elvis steps from the pages. You can feel him breathe. This book cancels out all others."--Bob Dylan

Another work on Presley? Since Guralnick is ``one of the best, most respected popular music historians'' in the business (Sweet Soul Blues Music, LJ 6/1/ 86), this could be good.
