    DescriptionINCLUDES AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR Since his death in 1977 Elvis Presley has become an even greater cultural icon than when he was making records and consuming deep-fried peanut-butter-and-banana sandwiches. IN SEARCH OF ELVIS sees Charlie Connelly set off on a journey to discover what makes Elvis so significant today and how his spirit is being kept alive more than half a century after he changed popular culture for ever. Charlie's odyssey takes him to Finland to meet an academic who performs Elvis songs in long-dead languages - while wearing a kilt; to Canada to find the orthodox Jewish Elvis tribute artist, Schmelvis; to Scotland to get fitted out with the Presley tartan; and culminates in Memphis, where Charlie stays at the Heartbreak Hotel (which is at the end of Lonely Street) and records a song in Sun Studio, the very room where Elvis arguably invented rock'n'roll. Hilarious yet informative, with all Charlie Connelly's customary wit and charm, this audiobook will appeal to Elvis fans of all ages, plus the many travel-book aficionados who delighted in ATTENTION ALL SHIPPING.

    Review quote
    There is something about the way he reacts to fellow devotees around the globe that warms the heart SUNDAY TMES The way Julian Rhind-Tutt reads is so infectious ... you'll probably rush out and buy the classic collection Elvis:30 #1 hits GUARDIAN The narration keys into the light-hearted tone of this entertaining romp OBSERVER A thoroughly enjoyable exploration of an icon and his legacy. Ladie and gentlemen, Elvis may have left the building, but his soul lives on. Thank you and goodnight! EXPRESS
