Careless Love

Careless Love

Last Train to Memphis, the first part of Guralnick’s two-volume life of Elvis Presley, received unprecedented accolades. This concluding volume recounts the second half of Elvis’s life in rich and previously unimagined detail, and confirms Guralnick’s status as one of the great biographers of our time. Beginning with Presley’s army service in Germany in 1958 and ending with his death in Memphis in 1977, Careless Love chronicles the unraveling of the dream that once shone so brightly, homing in on the complex playing-out of Elvis’s relationship with his Machiavellian manager, Colonel Tom Parker. It’s a breathtaking drama that places the events of a too often mistold tale in a fresh, believable, and understandable context. This is the quintessential American story, encompassing race, class, wealth, sex, music, religion, and personal transformation. Written with grace, sensitivity, and passion, Careless Love is a unique contribution to our understanding of American popular culture and the nature of success, giving us true insight at last into one of the most misunderstood public figures of our times.
