"Splendid. . . . Though the relationship between Elvis and his crooked manager has been examined so many times it is a familiar story, Nash constructs it so well it reads like a freshly conjured thriller." -- Seattle Times (on THE COLONEL)

Those who turned him down include Cher and Karen Carpenter. And of course, there's plenty on the No. 1 woman in his life - Mom Gladys Presley."--New York Post

"What's left to say about Elvis? Plenty, if Alanna Nash is on the case. She rips the satin sheets right off the King, resulting in the most entertaining Elvis book ever. Ann-Margret! Raquel Welch! Barbara Eden! Tura Satana! This is very funny book."--Jimmy McDonough, New York Times bestselling author of Shakey: Neil Young's Biography

"Un-put-downabble."--Jezebel.com

"Alanna Nash meticulously documents and explores all the relationships Elvis had with women that were 'extremely special, ' as Ann-Margret so delightfully (and euphemistically) phrases it.

Nash belongs in the pantheon of great music writers, and this book is a fascinating study--Rosanne Cash

Reseña del editor:

Thirty-three years after his death, Elvis Presley's extraordinary physical appeal, timeless music, and sexual charisma continue to captivate, titillate, and excite. Though hundreds of books have been written about the King, no book has solely explored his relationships with women and how they influenced his music and life . . . until now.

Based largely on exclusive interviews with the many women who knew him in various roles--lover, sweetheart, friend, costar, and family member--Baby, Let's Play House presents Elvis in a new light: as a charming but wounded Lothario who bedded scores of women but seemed unable to maintain a lasting romantic relationship. While fully exploring the most famous romantic idol of the twentieth century, award-winning veteran music journalist Alanna Nash pulls back the covers on what Elvis really wanted in a woman and was tragically never able to find.
