Elvis Presley: Elvis In The Twilight Of Memory by June Juanico

Taschenbuch - 322 Seiten - Englisch

A touching portrait of the times [and] smalltown '50s America ... Read it and weep' TIME OUT
`Frank and full of life ... In its most vivid, rough-housing passages, June Juanico's book succeeds because it need not be about Elvis Presley at all' GREIL MARCUS in THE TIMES
`Marvellous ... It gives a clearer, closer picture of the period than anything yet published ... Everything about this book is a joy. It's frank, funny and affectionate' MOJO 

It began in 1955, when the teenage June Juanico was persuaded by a friend to go and see an up-and-coming young singer perform in Biloxi, Mississippi. The singer was Elvis Presley, the venue a makeshift dance-hall like the dozens of others across the deep South where Elvis would make his name. June soon caught his eye, but after one wonderful evening together a combination of bad luck and the demands of Elvis's touring conspired to keep them apart until May 1956, when they met up again. It was the start of an idyllic summer together, during which June fell in love, toured with Elvis in Florida and had to come to terms with dating the hottest property around.

With an Introduction by Presley's acclaimed biographer, Peter Guralnick, and featuring many previously unpublished photographs, ELVIS: IN THE TWILIGHT OF MEMORY is June Juanico's own account of that magical time. A bitter-sweet love story moulded by innocence and the demands of fame, June's wonderfully fresh memoir provides a fascinating new insight into the genesis of the man who would be King.

When a friend of seventeen-year-old June Juanico invited her along to a concert by a popular young singer, she hesitated, but finally went. The singer, of course, was Elvis Presley, and when his eye caught June's, they both got all shook up. So began the most significant of his early relation-ships - a summer idyll of romance and playful fun that was to be a last stop innocence on the path to self-destruction.
In this clear-eyed, loving, and tender memoir, June gives us Elvis on the verge of mega-stardom, still a country kid with polite manners, a voice that melted hearts, and more sex appeal than anyone could handle. June describes her closeness to Elvis's mother, Gladys, who had hoped June and Elvis would marry, and her rivalry Colonel Parker, Elvis's handler, who believed marriage would end his protege's career. And then there the thousands of screaming fans, doing anything they could get a piece of the King.

In the end the self-prossessed June knew that however much Elvis loved her, he was on a track no one could stop and would never be in control of his life; she made up her mind to move on and not look back. Not until now. Featuring twenty- three previously unpublished photographs of Elvis and an introduction by Elvis biographer Peter Guralnick, this fresh and completely disarming memoir give us an American icon as few would know him, in a time and place bathed in the light of remembered love.
