Publisher's Summary

Elvis Presley’s unbreakable stronghold on the psyche of women - and theirs on him - is the focus of this much-lauded book by Elvis expert, journalist, and Country Music Association Media Achievement Award winner Alanna Nash. 

Called "by far the best study of Presley I have ever read...Impressively researched written - and felt" by New York Times best-selling author Philip Norman (author of John Lennon and Shout!) and “the most entertaining Elvis book ever” by New York Times best-selling author Jimmy McDonough (Shakey: Neil Young's Biography), Baby, Let’s Play House is the first ever Elvis book to focus solely on his complex relationships with women, starting with his mother, and including celebrities such as Ann-Margret, Linda Thompson, Mary Ann Mobley, Cher, Raquel Welch, Barbara Eden, and Cybill Shepherd. 

Featuring dozens of exclusive interviews, Baby, Let’s Play House is a must-have collector’s item for fans of The King everywhere.

Wish there was more ~

I have been an Elvis fan/admirer for just shy of one year. ( I am 56 y/o) Planned a pre Covid adventure to Memphis in February. Prior to my bucket list Graceland experience, I attempted to watch Elvis movies. Listened to and watched every documentary and interview that is available. Researched and soaked in every aspect of "Elvis" that I could. For lack of a better description I fell in love/respect for the humanitarian that was Elvis. I am partial to the memoirs and writings of the inner circle, the Memphis Mafia and their legacies. I feel oddly blessed to be a generation that can have access/exposure to Billy and Jo Smith and Sheri Lacker who were with Elvis a large majority of time. With all of this being said when I started to 'listen' to Alanna Nash's "Baby, Let's Play House" I became defensive and skeptical of what I was hearing.(Denial of my own thoughts). With each chapter my skepticism lessened. What I was hearing only reinforced what I already knew. Ms. Nash not only delivers history with each relationship but psychological based facts that are DSM based.The amount of research, interviews, investigating and genuine sincerity that are revealed in this "Omg, I can't stop listening book" are revolutionary to any Elvis fanatic/fan/admirer. While I still have much to absorb about the life of Elvis Presley, Ms. Nash's book has brought me full circle to a better understanding of who Elvis actually was and why he followed the path and made the decisions that he did. Although eye opening for sure...it has left me with an even greater respect. Thank you Alanna Nash. Looking forward to reading/listening to more of your writing!

the description of this book is misleading

the description of this book is misleading i feel like i've been tricked
i'm about halfway thru this audiobook. it's NOT about elvis and the women in his life. so far, it it duplicating every inch of every other elvis book i've read. i'm a 60 year old female. i have loved elvis for a lifetime. i've read everything i can get my hands on, regarding elvis. right now, i'm very disappointed. i can't decide whether to return the audiobook or power thru, in hopes it will live up to how it's advertised.

Finally Truth instead of media Fiction!!!

First A Huge Thank You! To Alanna Nash for writing this book 📖 and for All of your research and interviews and getting to the truth of what really happened in Elvis Presley Life!!! No matter how flattering or unflattering it really was. It answers a lot of questions. I would rather hear the Truth! Then the way the media tried to portray Elvis. I’ve been an Elvis fan for a lot of years since I was a kid. My 2nd book I’ve read by A.Nash. Can’t wait to read the next one! Elvis👑💙🌹

Truthful

This gives you the story of Elvis and those closest to him. Not always flattering.

Stunning,what a listen!

I thought I knew practically everything about Elvis.Had grown up listening to his music and later watched all his concerts, read all the books .You only had to see his "68 Comeback Special to know he was beautiful and sex on legs.Like thousands of girls, his music, his looks, have moved me like no other entertainer.What I didn't know, and this book has shown me, is what a prolific lover he was, and I mean PROLIFIC ! Thankyou for sharing to that extent Elvis, WOW ........!!
