Description

Jeremy Reed is one of the most brilliant poets of his generation and his many fans believe HEARTBREAK HOTEL to be the work that will catapult him into the big league. HEARTBREAK HOTEL is a brilliant, witty, evocative biography of Elvis in verse. It has the potential to become a great cult classic, not just because of the subject, but because the poetry is stylish and accessible as well as scintillatingly intelligent.show more

Review quote

What a fabulous response we've had to this wonderful collection of poems about Elvis, the man and the myth. The critics agree that this is one of Jeremy's finest collections; here's what they're saying: 'Pick of the commemorative crop ... from British poetry's glam, spangly and shape-shifting answer to David Bowie'THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY MAGAZINE 'Clear-eyed, clever, coolly boho - it's also deeply touching'THE TIMES 'Destined to become a cult classic'THE MIRROR Possible reviews to follow include: the DAILY EXPRESS, FT, THE GUARDIAN, the DAILY MAIL, the SUNDAY TELEGRAPH, the SATURDAY TIMES, OBSERVER, the MAIL ON SUNDAY, the NEW STATESMAN, THE ECONOMIST and POETRY REVIEW The book's also been really warmly received by Elvis fan-clubs around the world. ELVIS UNITED (www.elvis-fans.co.uk) said Jeremy's words left them feeling 'overwhelmingly moved' and strongly recommended the book to their members. The official Australian fan-club ELVIS INFORMATION NETWORK (www.elvis.com.au) is running acompetition for its members and we expect more reviews on other sites, including www.Elvisly.Yours.co.uk and www.Elvis-Today.com, as well as in the UK fanzine THE ELVIS TIMES. Radio 2's FRONT ROW included the book in its Elvis-lead programme in late July and THE VERB (also BBC Radio 2) is commissioning a piece by the author to be broadcast in early October. And - last but not least! - check out the fabulous 'Heartbreak Hotel' window display at Borders in Chashow more
