5.0 out of 5 stars Find out what made Elvis tick
Alanna Nash's new biography is a veritable feast of anecdotes from numerous Elvis girlfriends and female acquaintances. There are new stories in this extensively researched book to thrill even the most well-read Elvis fan.

June juanico a significant girlfriend of 1955/6 from Biloxi refuses to endorse this book and it's vicarious second hand narrative.

5.0 out of 5 stars Find out what made Elvis tick, 1 Aug 2010
This review is from: Baby, Let's Play House: The Life of Elvis Presley Through the Women Who Loved Him (Hardcover)
Alanna Nash's new biography is a veritable feast of anecdotes from numerous Elvis girlfriends and female acquaintances. There are new stories in this extensively researched book to thrill even the most well-read Elvis fan. Underpinning these episodes, however, is a deeper narrative which deals with Elvis's pyschological makeup, threading its way through each relationship from the first crucial attachment to his mother, which gives much credence to the theories of pyschoanalyst John Bowlby, to his last desperate fling with Ginger Alden. Nash provides a lucid, intelligent and meticulously sourced analysis of what motivated Elvis, in terms of his hopes, fears and desires. Some of it makes for uneasy reading and points up Elvis's human frailties. However, Nash handles the darker moments with dignity and responsibility and adds immeasurably to our appreciation of this beautiful man.

This review is from: Baby, Let's Play House: The Life of Elvis Presley Through the Women Who Loved Him (Hardcover)
I have just finished reading the most beautiful and moving biography book about beautiful,generous,unfulfilled,loving boy-man, who was the most talented musician of his generation, which I have had privilege to read. This is from somebody who till January 2010 had not a slightest interest in Elvis Presley. Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential!!!, 27 Aug 2012

This review is from: Baby, Let's Play House: The Life of Elvis Presley Through the Women Who Loved Him (Hardcover)
Alanna Nash's latest Elvis biography deals with his relationship with women.Based on countless interviews with the women in Elvis' life (both familiar names ans some long forgotten ladies) the book is fascinating from start to finish.
The author is helped in her analysis by pyschoanalyst John Bowlby who gives us a more clinical view on things. Alanna, manages to bring all this (intervies, analysis etc) perfectly together for what it must be the definitive book on Elvis the person.
I strongly reccomend it as a serious study to anyone how wished to REALLY know Elvis the man.

This review is from: Baby, Let's Play House: The Life of Elvis Presley Through the Women Who Loved Him (Hardcover)
Having read quite a few books on Elvis this one seems to me to be very honest and it did make me feel a bit sad for him having his life taken over not that he was aware at the time.
I love Elvis and this book makes you feel you have got to know him a little.

5.0 out of 5 stars SERIOUSLY GOOD, 25 Jun 2014

This review is from: Baby, Let's Play House: The Life of Elvis Presley Through the Women Who Loved Him (Hardcover)
Having read Peter Guralnick's two volume Elvis bio I wasn't expecting to learn much that was new - how wrong could I be! This is a brilliantly researched piece of work which considers our hero in an objective way giving insights into his foibles, fancies and eccentricities as well as his charm. There is a fair amount of psychological analysis and a detailed description of a way of life that has now passed into history. All in all this is a seriously compiled, fascinating document which will enthrall the Elvis devotee.
