An intimate account of legendary entertainer Elvis Presley, featuring stunning photography and exclusive stories from Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie Presley, and moreBehind the King of Rock and Roll was a husband, father, son, cousin, friend, and spiritual seeker. In Elvis by the Presleys, those who knew him best come together to memorialize our greatest star, featuring hours of exclusive family interviews, Elvis quotes, and private family photographs and images of personal memorabilia from the archives of Graceland/Elvis Presley Enterprises. Elvis by the Presleys reveals life at Graceland like never before. Graceland is seen as a teeming family retreat, where the kitchen was the center of operations; where tag football games were played in the yard; where folks drove golf carts up and down the hills; and where Elvis spent many of his happiest times.We witness the arc of his love affair with Priscilla; Elvis as a father to his adored Lisa Marie; his obsessions and passions; and the strength of his musical legacy, which continues unabated to this day. There are Christmas cards here, too; contracts and invoices; selections from Lisa Marie’s childhood scrapbook; and even a picture of the champagne bottle (signed) from Elvis and Priscilla’s wedding.Elvis by the Presleys is the tumultuous story of the life of a lovely yet complex man; a portrait of the career of a brilliantly accomplished yet often frustrated artist; an insider’s tale of enduring love, related with warmth and unguarded candor . . . and a story told the way only a family can tell it.
