Ginger Alden was associated with Elvis Presley until his death in August 1977, and in 2014 she published a memoir with the title Elvis & Ginger: Fiancée Elvis Presley and Last Love finally tell their story. By publishing the book, Alden hoped to counter false rumors about Presley that surfaced after the singer’s death.
In an interview with Smashing Interviews Journal, Alden spoke extensively about Presley’s generosity. She said Presley would be “deeply hurt” if people did not accept the gifts he gave them.
Ginger Alden wrote a memoir about her relationship with Elvis Presley
Alden announced Elvis & Ginger: Fiancée Elvis Presley and Last Love finally tell their story on September 2, 2014. She waited several decades to write a book so she could focus on raising her son.
“I wasn’t interested in making a book, but with so much to hear, so much work and the accomplishments going on out there, it was hard, but like I said, I was waiting , and I raised my son, ”she said Smash Interview Journal.
When she decided to publish the book, Alden wanted to show Presley fans that he was as good and bad as everyone else.
“It would mean a lot if one could walk away after reading and saying, ‘Wow! Elvis was human, ‘”she said. “We all are. He had good days and bad days, but above all, he was looking forward to many things. I tried to write about his generosity and how he cared so much for so many people. ”
