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

For the last forty years, award-winning songwriter Linda Thompson has quietly led one of the most remarkable lives in show business. The longtime live-in love of Elvis Presley, Linda first emerged into the limelight during the 1970s when the former beauty pageant queen caught the eye of the King. Their chance late-night encounter at a movie theater was the stuff of legend, and it marked the beginning of a whirlwind that would stretch across decades, leading to a marriage with Bruce Jenner, motherhood, and more drama than she ever could have imagined. Now for the first time, Linda opens up about it all, telling the full story of her life, loves, and everything in between. From her humble beginnings in Memphis to her nearly five year relationship with Elvis, she offers an intimate window into their life together, describing how their Southern roots fueled and sustained Gracelands greatest romance. Going inside their wild stories and tender moments, she paints a portrait of life with the King, as raucous as it is refreshing. But despite the joy they shared, life with Elvis also had darkness, and her account also presents an unsparing look at Elviss twin demonsdrug abuse and infidelityforces he battled throughout their time together that would eventually end their relationship just eight months before his untimely death. It was in the difficult aftermath of Elviss death that Linda found what she believed was her true home: the arms of Olympic gold medal-winner Bruce Jenner. Detailing her marriage to Bruce, Linda reveals the apparently perfect life that they built with their two young sonsBrandon and Brodybefore Bruce changed everything with a secret hed been carrying his entire life, a secret that Linda herself kept for nearly thirty years, a secret that Bruces transition to Caitlyn Jenner has finally laid bare for the world. Providing a candid look inside one of the most challenging moments of her life, Linda uncovers the struggles she went through as a woman and a mother, coming to terms with the reality of Bruces identity and resolving to embrace him completely no matter what, even as it meant they could no longer be together, And yet, despite her marriage unraveling, her search for love was not over, eventually leading her to the legendary music producer and musician David Foster, a relationship that lasted for 19 tumultuous years, resulting in a bond that spurred her songwriting career to new heights but also tested her like never before. Filled with compelling and poignant stories and 16 pages of photographs, A Little Thing Called Life lovingly recounts Lindas incredible journey through the years, bringing unparalleled insight into three legendary figures
