Last Train to Memphis, the first part of this author's two-volume life of Elvis Presley, received unpprecedented accolades. This concluding volume recounts the second half of Elvis's live in rich & previously unimagined detail, & confirms the authors status as one of the great biographers of our time. Beginning with Presley's army service in Germany in 1958 & 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, & understandable context. This is the quintessential American story, encompassing race, class, wealth, sex, music, religion, & personal transformation. Written with grace, sensitivity, & passion, Careless Love is a unique contribution to our understanding of American popular culture & the nature of success, giving us true insight at last into one of the most misunderstood public figures of our time
