SINATRA THE CHAIRMAN
Bibliophile price: £10.00
In 2010, Frank: The Voice was James Kaplan's rich, distinctive story of Frank Sinatra's meteoric rise to fame, subsequent failures and reinvention as a star of live performance and screen. The story of Ol' Blue Eyes continues with Sinatra: The Chairman, picking up on the day after he claimed his Academy Award in 1954, and re-established himself as the top recording artist. His life post-Oscar was astonishing in scope and achievement, including immortal recordings almost too numerous to count, affairs ditto, many memorable films and a few more stinkers, Rat Pack hijinks that mesmerised the world with their air of masculine privilege, and an intimate involvement at the intersection of politics and organised crime that continues to shock and astound with its hubris. The book contains a wealth of entertaining detail about the singer's career, gnawing personal insecurity, lavish sexual indulgence, and obsessive music virtuosity. Vegas, The Rat Pack, The Kennedys, The Mob and dirty money, Sinatra could be petty and vindictive, then generous and charismatic. His story is told by a masterful storyteller. Tiny remainder mark on this special import. Heavyweight 979pp with extensive notes and many illustrations. US first edition 2015.
