9780786177387: Elvis Presley: The Man, the Life, the Legend [UNABRIDGED]

That voice, those eyes, that hair, the cars, the girls—Elvis Presley revolutionized American pop culture. “His appearance on Ed Sullivan ripped the 1950s in half,” writes the author. Keogh examines Elvis’s life and style to reveal the generous, complex, spiritual man behind the gold sunglasses.

About the Author:

Pamela Clarke Keogh is the author of the internationally bestselling biographies Audrey Style and Jackie Style. Educated at Vassar College, she lives in New York City and visits Memphis whenever she can.



Anna Fields (1965-2006), winner of more than a dozen Earphones Awards and the prestigious Audie Award in 2004, was one of the most respected narrators in the industry. Trained at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, she was also a director, producer, and technician at her own studio, Cedar House Audio.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this slim illustrated volume, icon biographer Keogh (Audrey Style; Jackie Style) presents an homage to Elvis from a unique perspective, explaining how his inimitable style-not just the way he dressed, but also the way he spoke and behaved-influenced the music and the sensibilities of Americans unlike anyone before or after him. He was "the original Slim Shady," Keogh writes; "his appearance on Ed Sullivan ripped the 1950s in half." "Before Elvis, there was nothing," John Lennon said. Keough breaks down the Pelvis’s life into chronological chapters, from Elvis’s early days in Memphis through his last days at Graceland. Keough highlights major milestones as well as small, personal anecdotes, and includes essays such as "Elvis’ closet," which recounts his style choices. ("Things the King Never Wore-Baseball caps, Dockers, golf shirts, boxer shorts with funny patterns, rep ties, clogs, a Snugli, Earth shoes, a fanny pack, you get the idea.") And she gives an especially moving account of the early relationship between the singer and his 14-year-old love, Priscilla Beaulieu. Appealing though uninspired photographs of Elvis at moments of celebrity and privacy round out this intimate portrait of a man who was larger than life.
