Tim Vine's 6 best books

Tim Vine is an actor, writer and comedian who won the prize for the funniest joke at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express. One title on the list:
Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley by Peter Guralnick

I’m a huge Elvis fan and this looks at the second half of his life and the way it tragically ended in his self-destruction. I’m the sort of person who devours books about their heroes and, while you know the ending to this story, it is still packed with fascinating detail.
Read about another book on the list and see the joke that won Vine the funniest joke prize at the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe.

Careless Love is number one on Bob Stanley's critic's chart: top books about Elvis.
