9780025539105: Elvis and Gladys

An intimate story of the King of Rock'n'Roll and his adoring mother - One of the best researched and most acclaimed books on Elvis's early life, reconstructs the pivotal role Gladys played in her son's formative years Reissued by popular demand after twenty years, Elvis and Gladys is a compelling narrative about a unique boy and the maternal tie that bound him. "For once, a legend is presented to us by the mind and heart of a literate, careful biographer who cares," wrote Liz Smith in the New York Daily News when Elvis and Gladys was originally published. This is the book, Smith says, "for any Elvis lover who wants to know more about what made Presley the man he was and the mama's boy he became."
