Elvis and me ( edition) | Open LibraryWho is Priscilla Beaulieu Presley? A misunderstood, caring person or a manipulative, power driven woman? As noted in the introductory Author's Note to Child Bride , the writing of the book led to the opening of a Pandora's Box surrounding its subject and the examination of an often told story that was found to be part fact-part fiction. At the outset it must be noted that much of the material in the book about the sexual awakening of Ms Presley relies on the account of Currie Grant once part of Elvis' inner circle and the veracity of his story has been questioned more than once. Child Bride is never boring and it certainly is more "juicy" than Ms Presley's own memoir, Elvis and Me. There are many fascinating issues discussed. In particular, Elvis' unusual sexual psychology and the extent of Elvis and Priscilla's pre-marital sexual relationship is engrossing, while Priscilla's escalating seeds of doubt about Elvis' lack of faithfulness to her during the Hollywood years is well described as the on-off-screen relationship between The King and rising star, Ann-Margret hots up.
