This book was published in 1979 and is of interest as a aspect of Elvis' story. I bought it because I read something written by Martin Torgoff and he is a good writer. I had previously thought it likely that this book was a just another sensational story, but it wasn't. Is is though, the story of the Stanley boys and Dee Stanley and as such is not an objective account. Dee comes across to me as a confused, complicated and not very likeable woman. Her recounting of her relationship with Elvis and some of her accounts of Vernon Presley do not accord with others I have read but who knows what goes on behind closed doors. In this book Dee is prepared to tell all and Martin Torgoff writes about her sympathetically. I found the account of three young boys who suddenly found themselves close to a charasmatic superstar who they could now call their 'brother' to be very interesting and touching. It's not hard to imagine how star struck they became especially when they were in receipt of Elvis' ledgendary generosity. That they went off the rails is a fact and you will decide for yourself how this happened. Dee blames Elvis and is also unforgiving that the boys were not included in Elvis' will.
