Reviews

"A triumph of biographical art...Profound and moving."--Stephen Wright, New York Times Book Review
"Elvis steps from the pages. You can feel him breathe. This book cancels out all others."--Bob Dylan
"Altogether splendid...It is the particular and spectacular achievement of Last Train to Memphis that it holds both the making of the history and the beginning of the myth in firm, simple, and compassionate focus."--Jay Cocks, Time
