April 29 - Elvis Presley: Último Trem Para Memphis

The Brazilian Belas-Letras will release a Portuguese edition of Peter Guralnick’s ‘Last Train to Memphis’ as ‘Elvis Presley: Último Trem Para Memphis‘ in Brazil on May 2, 2022.

Fans who pre-ordered the 640-page book also receive an Exclusive Kit that includes a paper Elvis you can assemble yourself.

DescriptionThe most important biography on one of the greatest names in rock history of all time

The story that shows the man behind the myth. The world that Elvis Presley grew up in, the world that shaped him, and the world that he, almost without realizing it, shaped for himself.

Last Train to Memphis vividly recounts Elvis' youth. His childhood, his first successes, his film career, his particularly intimate relationship with his parents and also with girlfriends, colleagues, mentors and fans. All this narrated with all the grace and simplicity of everyday life, in a time of dreams and a music industry that had not yet defined itself, and based on hundreds of interviews and years of research.

His energy was fierce; the competitive spirit seemed to take over the shy, polite boy deep inside; every minute he was on stage was like an incendiary explosion.

Priscilla Likes Baz

Priscilla Presley offered her thoughts on the upcoming film about late ex-husband Elvis Presley after attending a private screening.

Presley, 76, took to Facebook on Friday to share her praise for director Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, which premieres at Cannes Film Festival next month ahead of Warner Bros. releasing the movie theatrically on June 24. The Naked Gun actress said she saw the film with Elvis’ longtime friend Jerry Schilling and was particularly impressed by Austin Butler in the title role.

“This story is about Elvis and Colonel Parker’s relationship,” Presley posted. “It is a true story told brilliantly and creatively that only Baz, in his unique artistic way, could have delivered. Austin Butler, who played Elvis is outstanding. Halfway through the film Jerry and I looked at each other and said WOW!!! Bravo to him…he knew he had big shoes to fill. He was extremely nervous playing this part. I can only imagine.”
