This is an auction for TARZAN PRESLEY by Nigel Cox.

"Raised by gorillas in the jungles of New Zealand, scarred in battles with vicious giant weta, seduced by a beautiful young scientist, discovered by Memphis record producer Sam Phillips and adored by millions - the dirt-to-dreams story of Tarzan Presley is as legendary as his 30 number one hits. Through its hypnotic fusing of two mythic lives Tarzan and Elvis, this novel takes on some of the founding fables of our culture. In the guise of a joyous adventure story it slyly poses questions about genius, fame, failure and love. A very funny story that boldly re-imagines the facts."

From Wikipedia:

"Nigel Cox (1951-2006) was a New Zealand author and museum director, with five novels published as of early 2006... While in Berlin, Cox completed his fourth novel, Tarzan Presley (2004). The book was notable for fusing the life story of Elvis Presley and the fictional character Tarzan into a single original narrative. The book was nominated in the fiction category of the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2005, where it was judged runner-up, despite being embroiled in copyright controversy in the United States. Cox returned to New Zealand in March 2005. His fifth novel, Responsibility (2005), set in Berlin, combined elements from noir and detective fiction with a comedic edge, It was runner-up in the 2006 Montana New Zealand Book Awards. On July 28, 2006, just four days after attending the Montana New Zealand Book Awards where he was the Fiction runner-up, Cox died due to cancer. He was working on the final draft of a sixth novel when he died."
