[Alanna] Nash belongs in the pantheon of great music writers, and [Baby, Let's Play House] is a fascinating study." --Rosanne Cash

Just in time for Elvis Presley's would-be 75th birthday comes a new book by Elvis expert, journalist, and Country Music Association Media Achievement Award winner Alanna Nash. Called "by far the best study of Presley I have ever read. . . Impressively researched written--and felt" by New York Times bestselling author Philip Norman (author of John Lennon and Shout!) and "the most entertaining Elvis book ever" by New York Times bestselling author Jimmy McDonough (Shakey: Neil Young's Biography), Baby, Let's Play House is the first-ever Elvis book to focus solely on his complex relationships with women, including celebrities such as Ann-Margret, Linda Thompson, Mary Ann Mobley, Cher, Raquel Welch, Barbara Eden, and Cybill Shepherd. Featuring dozens of exclusive interviews and scores of never-before-seen photos, Baby, Let's Play House is a must-have collector's item for fans of The King everywhere.

display_description Decades after his death, Elvis Presley's extraordinary physical appeal, timeless music, and sexual charisma continue to captivate, titillate, and excite. Yet 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--this book explores Presley's love affairs with, among others, Ann-Margret, Linda Thompson, Sheila Ryan Caan, June Juanico, Joyce Bova, Barbara Leigh, Cybill Shepherd, and Priscilla Beaulieu, as well as his numerous friendships with women. The book also spotlights the women who dared to turn him down, as well as two women--Kay Wheeler and Tura Satana--who taught him dance moves he used onstage. Baby, Let's Play House presents Elvis as a charming but wounded Lothario who bedded scores of women but seemed unable to maintain a lasting romantic relationship.--From publisher description.
