  • About the Edition

    Tells the story of Elvis after Elvis, exploring a spiritual dimension to the Elvis revival, where fans create a fantasy quasi-religion through which they blend and confuse Elvis and Jesus. In the growing myth of Elvis, Harrison identifies a vibrant synthesis between money and faith, unique to the modern age, but reminiscent of the early centuries of Christianity. Underpinning the whole story is Elvis"s extraordinary charisma, thousands of fans simply having a lot of fun and ultimately some great, enduring music.
