Marsh weaves an almost surrealist tale of a simple country boy thrust into an initially magical world of women and riches far beyond his wildest dreams. He was a star of stage, screen, radio, television and recordings, easily the biggest name in American entertainment, an international figure so persuasively attractive that in other lands, young people had begun to dream of the U.
The author is both critic and sympathizer about the King of Rock and Roll and one suspects stands as most of us do, in awe of the incredible primal talent and impact that one man possessed and unleashed upon the world.

Book Review : Lasting fame and greatness depend on the test of time. In this context, Susan MacDougall examines the latest university student text which seeks to answer the question of who is the greatest, Elvis or The Beatles. Is there a definitive answer?
Read Susan's detailed review to find out. Although the social and cultural unrest of youth in the s and s was a worldwide phenomenon, scholars have written little about the interrelationship between youth movements in different countries or movements in developing nations. He shows how Rock music stood at the confluence of several potent forces: modernization, trans-national business, imperialism, and nationalism.
He then elaborates on the effects of these forces in America's neighbor to the south. Rock music first hit Mexico in the s and grew popular among middle class youth, for whom it represented modernity and participation in an international culture. However, Rock music also had its critics; some complained that it represented a threat to traditional Mexican social and cultural values, while others saw it as an instrument of American cultural imperialism.
By the s, Rock music had become a "vehicle for free expression" , and asserted the concerns of young Mexicans from all classes: the desire to interpret for themselves the meaning of Mexico's revolutionary history, the balance between nationalism and internationalism, and the meaning of democracy. A Mexican counterculture known as La Onda "the Wave" emerged by the mids, which challenged traditional values and the ossified official memory of Mexico's revolutionary past.
Fearing that La Onda posed a threat to its power, the authoritarian Mexican government suppressed the counterculture movement, including the infamous Tlatelolco Massacre of By , Zolov contends, the Mexican counterculture had been effectively crushed and nearly forgotten. Zolov describes the political and cultural milieu against which Mexican youth rebelled in exacting and convincing detail, but some phenomena usually associated with the counterculture in developed nations are discussed only briefly, such as drug use among young Mexicans.
In fact, one wonders how accurate a portrait of the Mexican counterculture the Rock music genre can provide. Would a history of Rock in the United States tell the whole story of the American counterculture and political protest movements? Zolov describes Rock as a "mirror" 10 that reflected the concerns of Mexican youth in a rapidly modernization nation. Whether that mirror reflected issues accurately or in a distorted fashion is unclear. Nevertheless, Refried Elvis is an important work.
It provides a wealth of detail on the youth movement in Mexico and highlights the myriad ways in which the world's peoples have been growing closer together, how a global popular culture has been emerging, and yet how domestic issues can still shape the nature of social and cultural protest movements. The book is an important step in the creation of an international history of "the Sixties" and the worldwide youth rebellion of the Cold War Era.
