Overview

One of Rolling Stone's 10 Best Music Books of the Year

For nearly sixty years, Jerry Lee Lewis has been a monumental figure in American life. He electrified the world with hits like "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Great Balls of Fire," and "Breathless." Poised to steal the crown from Elvis Presley, he seemed unstoppable until news of his marriage to his thirteen-year-old cousin broke during his first British tour, nearly ending his career. Now, for the first time, Lewis's story is told in full, as he shared it over two years with Pulitzer Prize winning writer Rick Bragg. From the fields and levees of Depression-era Louisiana to the legendary Million Dollar Quartet session at Sun Records; from barnstorming tours with Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, and Buddy Holly to his lifelong rivalry with Elvis; from comedown to comeback, here is the story of the Last Man Standing."
