Elvis, Love, Reviews, Tender
For a woman who first wrote a very scathing tell-all about the stepson she detested (which fortunately was rejected by publishers) it’s surprising that she writes a book about Elvis and calls it: ‘Elvis, We Love You Tender’?
Was this review helpful to you?
Like the other reviewer said, it is Martin Torgoff who makes this book as good as it is. The stories about Elvis here are presented in a fair unjudgemental fashion, and the author (despite a few moments of artistic license) has a good grasp on Elvis the man and entertainer. The problem with the book is that the Stanley’s were not as close to Elvis as they make out to be. For instance Ricky was not playing Racket Ball with Elvis the last night of Presley’s life. Their stories turned very dark later on, but here they tell their stories both good and bad with a great deal of respect. Ricky and Billy basically maintained that respect over the years, but Dee and David’s stories have gotten more scandalous since then. Basically this book captures the feel of Elvis’ life in the 70′s pretty well and feels authentic since it was finished before the 70′s came to an end. Worth reading.
I believe the story was legit. A great read for someone that is an Elvis Fan.It’s worth the money.A must.
