Elvis Presley's Former Nurse Has Released A Memoir Featuring Stories About Her Time Working For The Music Legend.
Letetia Henley Kirk has written a tome titled Taking Care of Elvis - Memories with Elvis as His Private Nurse and Friend, which is a collection of short stories as well as never-before-seen photos of her time with the music icon.
Kirk first met Presley in 1968 when she treated him at the medical clinic in Memphis, Tennessee where she worked, and by 1972, he invited her and her husband and two young daughters to move to his famous Graceland compound to become his regular carer.
Kirk and her family lived at the sprawling Memphis property until 1983, six years after Presley's death, and now she is finally ready to share her stories, telling The Hollywood Reporter she decided to write the book after attending the annual Elvis Week gathering at Graceland last August (14).
Kirk says, "I realised how hungry the fans are for stories about what life was like during a normal day at Graceland... They already know the stories about drugs and sex and life on the road. They want to know what Elvis was like at Graceland during his private time. That's what this book is, light-hearted stories of my memories and experiences with Elvis."
Kirk's self-published memoir was released on Monday (10Aug15).
