About the Book
What is Memphis' one-and-only landmark street? Its Sunset Boulevard, Broadway, Toulouse Street? Not Beale, that's just a tourist attraction. Not Main, not Poplar, not American Way. It's the old entry road from the east, named after a long-forgotten general, Summer Avenue.
See what Memphians really need, a car, some guns and ammo, cheap booze, and spiritual advice. See what is left of the once famous Pat's Pizza, where Elvis and The Panterburns used to hang out.
Summer Avenue, a book for anyone who ever shopped, stopped or drove though Summer Ave. And for those who never dared.
Because you haven't seen Memphis if you haven't seen Summer Avenue.
