Elvis and Gladys
Elvis and Gladys (ISBN 1-57806-634-4) is a biography of rock and roll singer Elvis Presley by author and film industry insider, Elaine Dundy. The book recounts Presley's early life, the role his mother Gladys played in his formative years, and his beginnings in recorded music and film.
Dundy in the book claims that Elvis's great-great grandmother Nancy Burdine Tacket was Jewish, citing one of Elvis's third cousins, Oscar Tackett. However, there is no evidence that Elvis or any of the Presley family believed in this claim and columnist and Jewish genealogist Nate Bloom has challenged the claim and described it as simply a "tall tale".
