‘I think this is an excellent book. In my view the author did a terrific job on it and
has “hit the bullseye” with this accurate but most unusual treatment of Elvis’ life.
My congratulations to the playwright on a once-in-a-lifetime story beautifully told.’

‘“The Memphis Lullaby” is a beautifully written, well-researched and emotionally moving
story of Elvis Presley as told in monologue by the artist. Scripted in the format of a
one-person play, the text is dramatically developed so that the reader is able to vividly
visualize its staging. Author, Linda Ann McConnell, opens the door to an interesting insight
of the spiritually and humility of the artist and the reality of his being.’
