The Elvis Encyclopedia

Adam Victor, Author . Overlook $65 (608p) ISBN 978-1-58567-598-2

This obsessively detailed and completely entertaining chronicle by Victor (The Marilyn Encyclopedia ) of every possible aspect of Elvis Presley's life is mesmerizing and deserves a wide audience. Elvis fans will delight in the many famous and rare photos illustrating entries on the King's every song, album and movie as well as his complete last will and testament. But nonfans will marvel at such meticulously researched entries as “Religion” (a vision of “Stalin and Jesus in a high bank of cloud” made Elvis consider “joining a monastery”), as well as a comprehensive state-by-state list of “Hotels Where Elvis Stayed.” (Oct.)
