If there’s one musical icon people are still talking about, it’s Elvis Presley. Upon the release of the blockbuster movie, it makes sense why Elvis and Me by Priscilla Presley are getting revamped.
For those of us who weren’t alive upon its first publication, the book originally hit shelves in 1985. Written by Priscilla Presley in collaboration with Sandra Harmon, the book gave insight into the popular musician and his life with Priscilla.
While the two eventually divorced, their love is one still heavily discussed today. That’s why it makes sense for Berkley to republish it along with a new cover and in paperback. This new makeover comes at an excellent time, too.
Not only did Elvis catapult Priscilla Presley’s relationship with the king back into the spotlight, but the book is serving as an inspiration for an upcoming adaptation.
Elvis and Me by Priscilla Presley is getting a new look this summer!
While the Elvis movie was popular, we’re going to be getting a new look at Priscilla’s life through the lens of Sofia Coppola. Entitled Priscilla, the film is going to be based on Elvis and Me with Cailee Spaeny playing Priscilla while Jacob Elordi is playing Elvis. At this point, there is no release date set for the film.
However, we do have all the details you need to know about the Elvis and Me makeover. This new paperback version will be released on August 1st, 2023. While the original cover is clearly of its time, I can say that I vastly prefer the new one and I can see why Berkley chose to use that picture.
I feel like Elvis and Priscilla’s relationship is so glamorized that it’s nice to know she talks about the good, bad, and ugly within these pages. I have a feeling that this one is going to blow up upon its re-release and even more after the release of Priscilla.
However, I’d love to know what you think. Do you enjoy this new look for Elvis and Me? If so, will you be picking it up in August?
Elvis and Me by Priscilla Presley and Sandra Harmon is out on August 1st, 2023.
