New Elvis Speaks Book

A new book titled "Elvis Speaks: Thoughts on Fame, Family, Music, and More in His Own Words" by Elizabeth McKeon ("Elvis in Hollywood : Recipes Fit for a King", "Fit for a King : The Elvis Presley Cookbook") and Linda Everett is set for release April 2004. The book will contain 256 pages and is published by "Cumberland House Publishing" erscheinen. From the press release: "Elvis Presley spoke to a whole generation of people through his music. Whether it was a ballad, a gospel hymn, or pure rock’n’roll, when he sang, people listened. However, there was more to Elvis than his music and movies. Throughout his career he was questioned by mobs of adoring fans and interviewed by thousands of inquisitive reporters. Repeatedly he was asked personal questions about his life, ranging from love and marriage to his musical style, from his religious beliefs to his family. He answered them all in a polite and forthright way. ELVIS SPEAKS is a collection of Elvis’s words—what he said on a variety of topics such as loneliness, performing in front of live audiences, how he felt about his fans, how he felt about being drafted into the army, music, love, and religion. The words are pure Elvis. They come from the heart and reflect the man behind the entertainer and beyond the gates of Graceland, the Cadillacs, the gold records, and the money. ELVIS SPEAKS tells of a man who loved to entertain people and found heartache and happiness in a career that spanned nearly three decades.

I bought a book in 2001 named "The Quotable King" by the same authors and same publisher. It was published in 1997. The introductory remarks are more or less the same words as the mentioned above in the press release. However, it contains only 173 pages.
