Praise
"[Nash] manages to collect all the madness, badness and sadness of the Elvis myth in one exhaustive and (let's face it) embarrassingly tempting volume."
From the Publisher
Annotation Alanna Nash leaves no stone unturned in her comprehensive examination of Elvis Presley's love affairs and relationships with women. As the original rock-and-roll sex symbol, Elvis's list of ladies included the famous (Ann-Margaret, Raquel Welch, Cher, Cybill Shepherd) and the not-so-famous (Nash makes much of his attraction to those significantly younger than he, and Presley certainly dated more than his share of beautiful but otherwise unknown members of the fairer sex). There is plenty of spicy gossip in this hefty volume, but Nash also does some first-rate interviewing to bolster the authority of her accounts and theories. She takes some stabs at psychoanalysis, connecting the dots between the King's lovers and his powerful relationship with his mother, as well as the fact that he lost a twin brother at birth. Curious fans unafraid of some less-than-decorous details will get a kick out of BABY, LET'S PLAY HOUSE.
Editors Note Thirty-three years after his death, Elvis Presley's extraordinary physical appeal, timeless music, and sexual charisma continue to captivate, titillate, and excite. Though hundreds of books have been written about the King, no book has solely explored his relationships with women and how they influenced his music and life . . . until now. Based largely on exclusive interviews with the many women who knew him in various roles—lover, sweetheart, friend, costar, and family member—Baby, Let's Play House presents Elvis in a new light: as a charming but wounded Lothario who bedded scores of women but seemed unable to maintain a lasting romantic relationship. While fully exploring the most famous romantic idol of the twentieth century, award-winning veteran music journalist Alanna Nash pulls back the covers on what Elvis really wanted in a woman and was tragically never able to find.
