Ginger Alden, Elvis Presley’s fiancé at the time of his death, is writing a new book, a memoir to be titled “Elvis & Ginger: Elvis Presley’s Fiancé and Last Love Finally Tells Her Story.” Although the King of Rock and Roll might be dead, Ginger Alden’s book is said to share her love of the late singer, and just recently became available for pre-order on Amazon.com, the Inquisitr shares this Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013.
The Ginger Alden book isn’t coming out until August 5, 2014, but Elvis fans everywhere who want to read the latest news on Alden’s relationship with the King can keep the memory of the iconic star alive by pre-ordering the piece well ahead of its release date. And this first look at the memoir will be a great way to see the King in a previously unknown light.
“Above it all, Alden rescues Elvis from the hearsay, rumors, and tabloid speculations of his final year by shedding a frank yet personal light on a very public legend. From a unique and intimate perspective, she reveals the man—complicated, romantic, fallible, and human—behind the enduring myth, a superstar worshiped by millions, and loved by Ginger Alden.”
At the time of Elvis Presley’s shocking and sudden death in 1977, Ginger Alden was engaged to the legendary singer. Ginger Alden was the woman who found his body shortly after his death. As her book entails, she was born and raised in Memphis, and never imagined marrying the King, let alone being his "last love." She also discusses finding his body and the horrific discovery of the late King’s death:
“I said, ‘Elvis,’ and he didn’t answer, so I opened his bathroom door and that’s when I saw him in there,” Ginger offers. “He said, ‘I’m going into the bathroom to read,’ and that’s the last thing he said to me,” Alden concluded.
This first look at “Elvis & Ginger” is said to show a personal side to Elvis Presley that the world hasn’t seen before, and while the entire world was able to see the public view of the King, she’s going to show through penning her upcoming book what it was like to know him on a deep and intimate level.
