Vay Johnston thought his life was disgustingly normal. At forty tow he had lived in Memphis all his life. His ex wife had saved him for paying alimony by marrying her divorce lawyer, he enjoyed his work at the lumber yard, and he had a girlfriend who, everyone had to admit, was a peach. He did suffer one recurring nuisance: From as far back as he could remember, strangers would come up to his asking, "Do you know you look a lot like Elvis?" One day a man at a bar notices the similarity. It turns our the man actually works for Elvis Presley, and soon Ray gets two unfriendly phone calls, supposedly from the King himself. Later comes a third, one that make Ray dizzy. He has been invited to dinner at Graceland! In an hour! Why? Ray can't believe it - even when the limousine arrives to take him to the famed residence. What follows is a meeting of two men who have almost nothing in common except their looks, their age, and the city they were born and grew up in. One is a working man who is trying to deal with what life has given him. The other is the most well-known and worshipped singer who has ever lived.
