Frankie....but not quite.
on 29 August 2012
I confess to being an unshakable Sinatra fan so I too enjoyed this book. I enjoyed it in spite of the slow recognition that all of the anecdotes had been gathered from elsewhere, some can be heard on Youtube 'Roasts' or on Johnny Carson interviews. Others are quotes from some of his concert performances on disc. While little of it is new, it is still an amusing read, albeit from the perspective of someone determined not to write anything bad or to broach any of the more lurid accusations levelled at Sinatra over the years. But I didn't care.... I'd marry him anyway.
Just one small thing.... what is this word 'thusly'? Used far too often and not good writing.
