La Vraie Histoire

Piggybacking on the release of the 'ELVIS' biopic, the French Les Editeurs Reunis re-issued Kathleen Tracy's 272-page biography '...' as 'Elvis, La Vraie Histoire' on May 25, 2022. The original English edition was release as 'Elvis Presley: A Biography' in 2006.

Description: An iconic figure in American popular music, Elvis Presley paved the way for generations of artists with his blend of talent, charm and provocative spirit. Almost forty-five years after his death, his legacy continues to stand the test of time.

But beyond the glitter and eccentricities often commented on in the press, little is known about the hellish life that the singer led and that shortened his career. This is why this book moves away from the traditional clichés by presenting the human aspect of the king of rock and roll. It reveals disturbing confidences about the idol and elucidates questions for which the public had never had answers.

It realistically evokes the childhood of the star, in conditions of great poverty; his beginnings and his tours in bad places; his unhealthy fixation on his mother; his vertiginous rise and his daily life of destructive debauchery; the gilded cage that he inflicted on Priscilla, his too young fiancée, whom he believed to be the reincarnation of his dear mother; the despotic domination to which his unscrupulous but brilliant manager subjected him.

The "King of Kings" as you have never seen him, stripped of his stage costume. A man like the others, overtaken by his own legend, with a destiny as exceptional as it was tragic.
