The book has a wide range of sources and you have to feel that it's more accurate than some of the buddy books that were released at a time when the writer depended on Priscilla's goodwill for their livelihood.
And in the middle was poor little Lisa - daughter of a mother who showed very little interest in her and dumped her in one Scientology camp/school after another so she could go "find Priscilla". Always been suspicious of people that talk about themselves in the 3rd person.
In summary - she just comes across as cold, incredibly vain and full of naked ambition. Unfortunately Elvis fell for it....but read it for yourself and make your own mind up. The author has written a fascinating book.
The book is generally well written and widely researched. I felt that the author rather lost interest after the immediate aftermath of Elvis' death, although it may just be that I did. The latter chapters covering the 80s and 90s are certainly the least interesting, apart from the couple of pages covering Lisa's mystifying marriage to Michael Jackson, about which I could happily have read rather more. Still, good book, well written.
As a female she really should have been more real about it . After all the world knows too many males will claim anything on this subject.
Question is why did Priscilla's step father, who was in a male dominated occupation all his life , not smell a rat in Currie Grant ? The question marks go on and on.
Brilliant, honest account of her life and how she wasn't the vestal virgin Elvis thought she was. Saying that, Elvis liked the ladies too so can't blame it all on her.
She did a lot of manipulating though, and still does.
Never liked the woman, but this is a fascinating look in to her life before, with, and after Elvis.
