Highly original and extremely acute, Treat Me Nice argues that Elvis and the Frankenstein Creature were condemned to self-destruction because they both horrified their creators. Treat Me Nice remembers not only the influential black musicians but also Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock, Herman Melville and Isaac Newton. Key figures in the doomed events are examined and Elvis is compared to other musical talents to reveal a clear view of his merit and importance. Inspired by ‘Frankenstein’ author Mary Shelley, who warned against our lack of sympathy for uncouth creatures, Treat Me Nice confronts traditional views and explores the contradictions within Elvis. It will be enjoyed and debated by Elvis fans but it will also appeal to those who enjoy popular music. ‘Immensely enjoyable and a stimulating read.’ Paul Simpson, author ‘Rough Guide To Elvis’. ‘This book deserves to be noticed. A formidable treatise.’ Elvis Information Network.
