Opis

Elvis Presley – A Southern Life – The result is a masterpiece: a vivid, gripping biography, set against the rich backdrop of Southern society indeed, American society in the second half of the twentieth century.

Author of The Crucible of Race and William Faulkner and Southern History, Joel Williamson is a renowned historian known for his matchless ability to write compelling narratives. In this tour de force biography, he captures the drama of Presley’s career and offers insights into the social upheavals following World War II. Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, Presley was a contradiction, flamboyant in pegged black pants with pink stripes, yet soft-spoken, respectfully courting a decent
girl from church. Then he wandered into Sun Records, and everything changed. He first went onstage in 1954. “I was scared stiff,” Elvis recalled. “Everyone was hollering and I didn’t know what they were hollering at.” Girls did the hollering at his snarl and swagger. Williamson calls it “the revolution of the Elvis girls.” They took command, insisting on his sexually charged performances. They lived in an intense moment, this generation raised by their mothers, when men had been at war. The first Supreme Court ruling in Brown vs. Board of Education occurred two weeks before Elvis’s first gig, turning high schools into battlegrounds of race. Explosively, white girls went wild for a white man singing a black man’s songs, “wiggling” erotically. Elvis Presley – A Southern Life illuminates the zenith of Presley’s career, his period of deepest creativity, which captured a legion of fans and kept them fervently loyal throughout years of army, wine, and women. Williamson shows how Elvis himself changed and didn’t. The deferential boy with downcast eyes became the bloated, demented drug addict who, despite his success, never escaped his sense of social inferiority. He bought Graceland in part to escape the judgment of his wealthy, established neighbors.

Appreciative and unsparing, musically attuned and socially revealing, Elvis Presley will deepen our understanding of the man and his times.
