Peter Guralnick's writing on music and musicians is unique in the literature of American popular culture. His first three books Feel Like Going Home, Lost Highway and Sweet Soul Music, form a trilogy that has achieved classic status tracing twentieth-century American popular music back to its roots. In these books, Guralnick brings to life the people, the songs, and the performances that forever changed not only the American music scene but America itself. Feel Like Going Home includes portraits of such giants as Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf; excursions into the blues-based Memphis rock'n'roll of Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich and the Sun record label; and a brilliant evocation of the bustling Chicago blues scene and the legendary Chess record label in its final days.
PETER GURALNICK has written extensively on American music and musicians. His books include the prize-winning two-volume Elvis Presley biography, Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love; the biographical inquiry Searching for Robert Johnson; and the novel Nighthawk Blues.
