Engaging and Moving Dec 3, 2007
Only Buckley could write a novel of this depth about a popular figure such as Elvis. This is a moving story, principally about Elvis and a young boy whom he befriends and remains close to his entire life. As Elvis's life unravels, the sanity of his freind's life becomes a touchstone of normality that throws Evis' life into tragic relief.
Buckley is greatly underrated as a novelist, and this book is one of his best.
