Synopsis

Elvis Presley re-made popular music - blowing away the polite, buttoned-up crooners by harnessing the feral sexual energy of black blues. The result was rock & roll - and "Elvis the Pelvis"'s provocative hip-shaking, the unbridled sexuality of his performances, scandalised America and Britain (and saw him only filmed above the waist to preserve good taste). But what of Elvis's own relationships with women - from his complicated and morbidly close relationship with his mother to his youthful sexual hyper-activity and his unsuccessful marriage? How far did they determine and affect his music? And what would the women who starred in movies with him, or who saw him at close quarters, or even became intimate with him - what are their memories of and insights into the real Elvis? Alanna Nash's book is the first to focus on Elvis and the most central aspect of his music and performances: sexuality - the thing that made him what he was and not Pat Boone. The revelations are often shocking, sometimes amazing, always fascinating. Alanna Nash's books on Elvis are characterised by their immense research and thoroughness, and their desire to soberly and responsibly get at the truth.

This new book presents the most important side of Elvis, and the most overlooked. Alanna Nash is the author of several acclaimed books about Elvis and his circle, including Elvis and the Memphis Mafia and The Colonel, both published by Aurum. She lives in Louisville, Kentucky.
