THE ELVIS ENCYCLOPEDIA in Wall Street Journal and New York Post
Adam Victor's The Elvis Enyclopedia continues to draw praise as one this year's best holiday books. The Wall Street Journal Magazine noted: "The Elvis Encyclopedia explores all things Elvis Presley-related — entries on every song, album and movie ever released by the King. Compiling information from the testimonies of Mr. Presley’s friends, family, agents, managers and others, author Adam Victor even threw in Presley’s last will and testament, and a state-by-state list of all hotels frequented by the rock-and-roll icon." And from the New York Post: "No fan of the King would "Return to Sender" this 598-page volume. Few details are too small for this '70s-Elvis-size book - list of hotels he stayed at in more than four dozen cities, 16 different guitars he used and that Barbra Streisand offered him a part in A Star is Born."
