Elaine Dundy's book "Elvis and Gladys" 
has been re-issued 


Elvis and Gladys

"Elvis and Gladys" is one of the most respected books in the Elvis World, if not the best Elvis book ever written. It has been thoroughly researched and tells the effect Elvis' mother Gladys had on the life and career of Elvis Presley.

Amazingly, Elaine did not really know about Elvis until he died in 1977 but she eventually became hooked on Elvis and wanted to trace his roots. 

She read every book on Elvis and spent months in Tupelo researching his heritage until after four and a half years she at last had the material for an enthralling book. In all her research the dominance of Gladys shone through, possibly even inspring Elvis' stage movements because Gladys was a great dancer; "Gladys had rhythm" to quote Elaine.

Elaine's own life reads like a "Who's Who" in Theatre and Film. She was personal friends of Ernest Hemmingway, Tennesse Williams, Marilyn Monroe, Sir Laurence Olivier, Vivien Lee and Marlene Dietrich to name just a handful. She is the author of several books available from Amazon and an autobiography called "Life Itself".

Fans around the world can order the book through Amazom.com and for more details about the book click on: University Press of Mississippi. Elaine is recovering from a fall and we hope she is on the road to full fitness. We wish her every success with the re-issue of her book "Elvis and Gladys" to enthrall a new generation of Elvis fans since the book was first published in 1985, the same year coincidentally as our "Elvis, A King Forever".
