Praise

New York Times Book Review
"The scholar's Elvis has more in common with the one the fans cry out to: the Healing Elvis. This is Elvis as racial integrator, as gender-liberating sexual healer. The Multicultural Elvis is an even grander figure than the one the fans conceive of--an Elvis who heals not just personal pain in individual souls but painful rifts in the nation's soul, rifts not only between black and white but between sex and spirituality." - Ron Rosenbaum

Los Angeles Times
"A bold attempt to stretch the traditional boundaries of what it matters to know." - Amy Wallace

New Orleans Times-Picayune
"Probes the bizarre synapses of the American psyche."

Booklist
"Good news for Elvoids! The latest entry for the discriminating worshiper rises from the academic conference and consists of essays reflecting the range of academic inquiry about the Kind. Lavishly illustrated and featuring a cornucopia of documentation in the 35 pages of endnotes, this may be the perfect jumping-off point for research in the King's life and larger-than-life impact." - Mike Tribby

Midwest Book Review
Any with an interest in Elvis trivia or information will find this a fun folk consideration which includes essays and facts on the music, art, and other manifestations of Elvis Presley. This packs in facts about the musician and adds a cultural/social flair lacking in musical guides to the artist. June 1997
