A sordid read,
By A Customer
This review is from: Mr S: The Last Word on Frank Sinatra (Paperback)
Being a big Sinatra fan, this was a book I had to read. It's short, easy to read and actually a little sordid by the end. The trouble is its constant referalls to Sinatra's circle's sex lives and their treatment of anyone they didn't like. I don't think we can blame Jacobs for this. If he is writing what he saw, it's hardly his fault if h saw a lot of unpleasant things.
If you are a Sinatra devotee, there are some nice personal insights, but in the main this book inevitably relies on the more unpleasant side of Sinatra to sell itself.
