T





LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

wo legends take a fall in Non-Fiction. In "Wyatt Bother?", Tucson Weekly's Emil Franzi lays down the law against shoddy histories of Wild West icon Wyatt Earp. And in "The King Has No Clothes," Weekly Alibi's Brendan Doherty reviews "Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley," Peter Guralnick's account of The King's "overstuffed jumpsuit years."

Can "American Psycho" author Bret Easton Ellis recapture his outlaw literary cachet with "Glamorama"? Will this Rolodex of contemporary New York celebrity stand the test of time? Chicago Newcity's Ray Pride offers answers in "Glam Stand."
