Alanna Nash's book 'Elvis and the Memphis Mafia' with Billy Smith, Marty Lacker, and Lamar Fike, has been selected as one of the best "100 Great Stories" chosen by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism for their salute to the stories of the last century, as covered by graduates of the school.
They state that "In Elvis and The Memphis Mafia, Alanna Nash dug beneath decades of mythmaking to piece together an oral history of one of the greatest legends of 20th-century music."
Though they identify the book by its second title, with a 2005 publication date, this is the reprint of the 1995 book originally published as "Elvis Aaron Presley: Revelations from the Memphis Mafia." When the reprint appeared, Marty, Billy, Lamar and Alanna changed the title to what they always wanted it to be, though HarperCollins overruled us at the time.
Congratulations Alanna Nash!
