★★★★

‘Strikingly cinematic storytelling that cuts just the right way. Fine writing, sparkling dialogue. Sleek, fast-paced and exciting.’ Helen Nye

‘Stylish and addictive, plenty of intrigue and drama from Memphis to Los Angeles to Washington and into the heartland of America.’ Brent Stine

‘Exceptionally intelligent and thought provoking account of the life of Elvis Presley.’ Hugh Ransford

‘Everything that‘s great about rock’n’roll wrapped up in an impossibly true story.’ Juliet Hadsell

‘Exuberantly outrageous telling of one of rock’n’roll‘s finest moments.’ Jane Hansen

‘Intoxicating blend of true satire and sudden, sly compassion.’ Michael Acevedo

‘Deep, honest portrayal of a man who was a true American original.’ Jim Stanton

‘Fat, bloated, lost American dreamer. It‘s too easy to dismiss Elvis as a has-been or a hack. Truth is the man made rock’n’roll in his spirit. I guess I wrote the novel to find out more about Elvis than the typical biographies and hagiographies. I was looking for the soul of the man. The soul of rock’n’roll.’ Stefano Boscutti

“Boscutti‘s Elvis Presley” (Novel) is based on an award-winning screenplay.

    An Intriguing Screenplay Based on a True Story

    Such a fun read! I really enjoyed reading this screenplay that's based on a true story.

    Elvis is on a mission to meet President Nixon and find a way to convince the president to give him a Federal Drug Agent's badge. The journey itself is very entertaining, and it's interesting to read through this screenplay as Elvis is obviously not completely with it.

    It is intriguing to read about a man who was loved by so many people who feels as though he is entirely alone, and also as someone struggling with mental instability.

    This being written as a screenplay instead of a novel really brought the scenes and the story to life, and the dialogue is believable and fun.
