Elvis Presley was celebrity's perfect storm. His sole but substantial contribution was talent, a fact Charles L.Ponce de Leon is careful to demonstrate throughout his wonderfully contextual "Fortunate Son: The Life of Elvis Presley". Even as the moments of lucidity necessary to exercise that talent grew rarer and rarer, Elvis proved his musical gifts right up to the end of his life. Beyond that, however, he was fortune's child. "Fortunate Son: The Life of Elvis Presley" succinctly traces out the larger shifts that repeatedly redefined the cultural landscape during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, using Elvis's life to present a brief history of American popular culture during these tumultuous decades.
