Greil Marcus

Double Trouble: Bill Clinton and Elvis Presley in a Land of No Alternatives (Henry Holt and Company)

In Double Trouble, Marcus begins to reek of an old man whose generation has come of age. It's no surprise that Marcus identifies with and leans on characters such as Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and now President Clinton. They're all -- Marcus included -- of the first rock 'n' roll generation: an intelligent and undeniably talented generation filled with passion, ideas and the utmost potential. But they're also of a generation best embodied by a president who struggles, when put up to the light, with something as simple as defining the word "is."
