Conway Twitty Story

Wilbur Cross, Author, Michael Kosser, Author, Michael Kosser, Photographer Doubleday Books $14.95 (9p) ISBN 978-0-385-23198-5
This unashamed puff piece presents the rags-to-riches story of Harold Jenkins, a Mississippi-born, Arkansas-bred product of the Depression years who grew up listening to the Grand Old Opry on radio and later became a singer himself, picking his stage name from Conway, Ark., and Twitty, Tex. He rose to the top as a star of rock and roll, patterning his style on Elvis Presley, and then, although strongly advised against the move, switched to country music and rose to the top again. Twitty's biography might be easier to take if he weren't presented as a slight bit better than perfect. Photos not seen by PW. (August 1)
