Elvis & Presley - Robert Huber and Stephan Vanfleteren - From the Publisher ''The King is Alive!''...The journey of the photographers Robert Huber and Stephan Vanfleteren began in New York somewhere along 42nd street. It ended three weeks and eleven states later in Death Valley. Everything the two artists did during their journey, they did dressed as Elvis Presley, the King of Rock'n'Roll. The artists photographed each other, with Presley (Vanfleteren) in black and white, and Elvis (Huber) in color. ''Elvis'' and ''Presley'' crossed the country riding Greyhound buses and subways, hitch-hiking, strolling through malls or ending up in small town bars where strange women embraced them. While as photojournalists they were accustomed to remaining behind the scenes, here Huber and Vanfleteren found themselves suddenly thrust into the spotlight of their own work. What emerges is a hyperreal road movie, a media-damaged update of Robert Frank's "The Americans ", in which two Europeans step into the boundless television screen that is America.

- Gerald Duff -From the Critics From Publisher's Weekly - Publishers Weekly - Serious literary fiction about Elvis? You bet! Duff's (Graveyard Working) transcendent prose swings and sways, whoops and moans in pulsating
cadences reminiscent of the King. The hilariously pedantic introduction is a setup for the ``manuscript'' that follows: the wry, gritty and profoundly
moving autobiography of Elvis's identical twin brother, who allegedly died at birth. Jesse Garon Presley relates how, from his earliest childhood,
half-crazy mother Gladys lavished all her attention and affection on Elvis. Brought up as Elvis's ``cousin'' (although Mama calls on Jesse to stand
in for his twin from time to time), Jesse is left to his own devices-tinkering with cars and, later, hanging out in juke joints in Memphis and nearby
