Priscilla, Elvis, and Me

Michael Edwards, Author St. Martin's Press $0 (279p) ISBN 978-0-312-02268-6
Edwards, a top model during the '70s, here recounts seven years spent with Elvis Presley's widow, Priscilla, and their only child, Lisa. A checkered career that included four years as a Marine and sudden celebrity as a model preceded his involvement with Priscilla. Their grand passion and the abortion of their child are recounted in juicy, true-romance stylesome of it unintentionally funny. The relationship was haunted and eventually destroyed by the dead singer's ever-present spirit and the author's efforts to take Elvis's place at the price of his own identity, according to Edwards. His drinking, womanizing, growing attraction to teenager Lisa and Pricilla's increasing assertiveness and budding career as a TV actress further estranged the pair and ultimately led to their final break-up.
