Summary
Academy Award-nominated, Emmy Award-winning songwriter and actress Linda Thompson breaks her silence for the first time to share the extraordinary story of her life, her career, and her epic romances with two of the most celebrated, yet enigmatic, modern American superstars--Elvis Presley and Bruce Jenner.Unforgettable relationships have shaped Linda Thompson's life--two breathtaking love stories that this refined Southern belle has kept private, until now.Born and raised in a small suburb of Memphis, Tennessee, Linda was determined to make it as an independent woman in the American South of the 1970s. Using the scholarships she won with beauty pageants, the brainy beauty queen attended Memphis State University. Only twelve credits shy of her degree, she met Elvis Presley. For the coed and the King, it was love at first sight. While Linda became Elvis' muse, he encouraged her to devote herself to her songwriting--a passion that would blossom into an award-winning career. For nearly five years, these creative soulmates lived happily in Graceland, raising Elvis' daughter, Lisa Marie. But Elvis' drug use and erratic behavior eventually split them apart, just eight months before his death.Moving to Los Angeles, Linda nurtured her music career and became a star on the long-running variety show Hee Haw. She also found new love with a man she'd long admired, Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner. To the world, this beautiful couple shared an idyllic life. But a secret would ultimately devastate their marriage, a confidence that Linda carefully protected for thirty years, until her ex-husband opened his heart to the world. As difficult as the end of her marriage to Bruce was, her search for love was not over, eventually leading her to the legendary music producer and musician David Foster, to whom she was married for nineteen years.Compassionate yet candid, filled with compelling details, A Little Thing Called Life lovingly recounts Linda's incredible journey and offers fascinating insight into two legendary people
