Elvis, it seems, is everywhere. And for about three years, Rowland Scherman went looking for him. Elvis Is Everywhere captures this pursuit, in 70 photos documenting the author’s travels to Boston, Los Angeles, Nashville, Venice Beach, Orlando, Nag’s Head, Cape Cod, New York, Pasadena, and, of course, Memphis. In all these places was evidence that Elvis lives, at least in spirit, long after his well-mourned death.
This book is not so much about Elvis as it is about us. The abiding loyalty and reverence of the King’s devoted fans have enabled him to transcend even the most outrageous promotional hype. His image and his name have been absorbed into the language, the landscape, our very culture. Elvis continues to cast his spell on our collective consciousness.
