Sanjeev Bhaskar's 6 best books

Sanjeev Bhaskar, a British actor who appears in Notting Hill and the forthcoming adaptation of Ken Bruen's London Boulevard, named his six best books for the Daily Express.

One book on the list:
Last Train to Memphis
by Peter Guralnick

I’m a big fan of biographies and Elvis. This book and its sequel comprise the must-have Presley biography for the true fan. Incredibly detailed and well written it’s an affectionate but honest portrait of the man, unlike some of the hatchet jobs written after his death. Covers everything that a fan would want to know about The King.
Read about another book on the list.

Last Train to Memphis also appears on Robert Fontenot, Jr.'s top ten list of Elvis Presley books and Bob Stanley's "critic's chart" of top books about Elvis.
