Synopsis: An absorbing and eye-opening meditation on Elvis Presley's life--since his death. In 18 essays illustrated with more than 60 photos and line drawings, Marcus shows how Elvis remains alive in the cultural imagination of our place and time, and how the King's vitality has intensified in direct proportion to the obsession with his memory.
From the Publisher: "A book that begins and ends with an incredible premise: Elvis matters. Believe it, and Greil Marcus introduces you to an amazing group of fellow travelers. Deny it, and you still become part of a conversation that has defined and continues to define who we are as a people."-- Minneapolis Star-Tribune
