Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Harrison begins, of course, in pilgrimage: to Graceland. He shows how Elvisâs estate was pillaged nearly to ruin by his manager but was saved through the deft business acumen and financial vision of his divorced wife, one Priscilla Presley. If Graceland seems holy, thatâs because it is: Harrison unveils in Elvisâs allure a deeply spiritual dimension, showing how Elvis fans, over the decades, have anointed their idol with Christ-like qualities. Through Elvisâs extravagance, Harrison raises fascinating links between money and faith, and through Elvisâs life, he shows how the King actually fulfilled a host of roles ranging from hero to martyr to saint. Underpinning the whole story is Elvisâs extraordinary charisma andâlest we forgetâhis astonishing musical genius.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Fascinating, colorful, and deeply informative, this book is a must-have for any fan, anyone who was ever lucky enough to see Elvis alive or who hopes they might still be able to.
