Elvis Presley: A Southern Life by Joel Williamson covers it all. His early life in Tupelo, moving to Memphis, the school days when he was made fun of or ignored by many. The day he walked in to Sun Studio to create a record for his Moma and was discovered. It covers all the time in between the birth and death of Elvis. Elvis had a beautiful voice and moves that many came to see and hear. It got so bad that he could not leave home without being surrounded by bodyguards. I can't imagine not being able to go to the movies or a grocery store without being swamped by people. Even though many envied his life, it had to have been a hard life. He is still famous today all these years later. Graceland and Memphis see several fans/visitors daily. This was very interesting reading. The author has put a lot of research into this book, all listed at the end of the book. I recommend it to Elvis fans, would make a nice addition to your collections and to anyone wanting to learn more about the man, Elvis Presley.
I received an ARC (advanced readers copy) of this book from Net Gallery in exchange for my honest review rather it be good or bad. Thank you.
