Fans of Elvis Presley will be happy to discover that he is alive and well after all -- in words, that is. The King is brought to life between the pages of Elvis Word for Word, an exhaustive chronicle of Elvis's interviews, radio appearances, letters to friends and family, and much more. Elvis Word for Word records only that which verifiably passed that famously curled upper lip, letting the King finally speak for himself.

Meet the Author

In the summer of 1956, twelve-year-old Jerry Osborne brought home a 78-rpm cardboard record titled Elvis Presley -- The Truth About Me. For Osborne, this disc, with its two minutes of Elvis speaking to his fans, kicked off forty-four years of collecting records, tapes, and CDs of anything Elvis spoke into a microphone.

Elvis and Jerry eventually met and became friends in 1967, when both men were living in Memphis.

Jerry Osborne is the author of more than seventy books on recorded music and entertainment personalities. Among his best-selling titles are The Official Price Guide to Records and The Official Price Guide to Elvis Presley Records & Memorabilia.
