Michael Freedland's new biography gives a full portrait of the unorthodox singer's life, starting with his rough beginnings in the Italian quarter of Hoboken, New Jersey. Supported by his indomitable mother, Dolly, he battled toward a singing career despite any great evidence of talent.

Frank Sinatra represented the fulfillment of the American Dream
He was an extraordinary artist who left his mark on American music in this century. He had many names: Ol' Blue Eyes, the Chairman of the Board, the Sultan of Swoon, the Voice. "Frank Sinatra was the first true superstar. He not only lived the American dream, he defined it. Throughout his career, he reinvented himself -- or was reinvented by the public -- a dozen times. What fascinated me about Sinatra is not only that he was an icon, but that he was a totally different icon in every decade of his career." -- Ethlie Ann Vare , January 24, 1999.

by Nancy Sinatra

Ultimately, we will all remember Frank Sinatra as the World's Greatest Entertainer. The Voice lives on in this commemorative pictorial tribute to the life and 50-year career of the man who changed the face of music and movies from a humble beginning in Hoboken, New Jersey to his death on May 14, 1998 at age 82. In addition to being written by Nancy Sinatra, Frank's first-born daughter, this is the ONLY book done with the full cooperation of the Sinatra family. Reviewers rave "priceless," "a visual knockout," "a must-have for any Sinatra fan." Rare or previously unpublished photos and dozens of private stories told by his most intimate friends separate myth from the real deal and make this an extremely revealing -- and truly poignant -- testament to the legend who did it his way. Also features a complete discography and filmography.
Sinatra: The Artist 
and the Man
Click here to find out more
by John Lahr, Weegee and William Read Woodfield (Photographers), Willoughby, Abbott Evans (Editor)
"I am a symmetrical man, almost to a fault," Frank Sinatra once said. It is a peculiar statement, because Sinatra is precisely asymmetrical. How to reconcile the enchanting crooner and the explosive bully? What to make of the smooth tones of his voice and the rough edges of his persona? To find the true correspondence between the public and the private Sinatra, the artist and the man, is no easy task. John Lahr, drama critic for The New Yorker and one of the finest writers on the performing arts working today, has done just this in Sinatra: The Artist and the Man
The Rat Pack: The Hey-Hey Days of Frank and the Boys  by Lawrence J. Quirk, William Schoell
Click here to find out more
Quirk and Schoell's rehashing of the biographical details of Sinatra and the rest of his crew is only intermittently able to disguise its contempt for their personal and professional lives. If there's an opportunity for a pot shot, rest assured this book will take it, from the admittedly deserved(Cannonball Run II, anyone?) to the probably uncalled for (a charity performance for a halfway house for ex-convicts is dismissed with snide comments about Sinatra the wannabe gangster). Much of the source material is drawn from Quirk's footwork as an entertainment reporter in the 1960s; interviews that he conducted with Peter Lawford over the years also provide some juicy tales of sex and drugs, as well as the inside scoop on his ouster from "the Clan" after brother-in-law President Kennedy backed out of his planned Palm Springs vacation at Frank Sinatra's home. (The same stories, with much less venom and some more pizazz, can be found in Levy's Rat Pack Confidential.) 
The Frank Sinatra Reader 
by Steven Petkov (Editor), Leonard Mustazza (Editor)
Click here to find out more
The Chairman of the Board has inspired a great many emotions--from hero-worship to withering contempt--and you'll find most of them documented in this intelligent compendium. The editors have dredged up some wonderful relics, like Bruce Bliven's 1944 rumination on what makes the Voice so magical in the first place ("Undoubtedly, just plain sex has a great deal to do with the whole matter"). But the essays, reviews, and memoirs cover every segment of Sinatra's career, including the end-game triumph (or travesty) of the best-selling "Duets."
Remembering Sinatra: A Life in Pictures 
by Robert Sullivan
Click here to find out more
From Hoboken to Hollywood, Frank Sinatra was always a larger than-life package of talent, charisma, and controversy. Singers had been big before, but there had never been a sensation like the young Sinatra. He drove the women wild, then drove his career into the ground. He lived a life of monumental drama and intrigue: Was there truth to the mob rumors? (Some.) Were the suicide attempts over Ava Gardner real? (One of them was.) Did he really split with Jack Kennedy over something as small as a snub? (Sure he did.) And then: the ferocious comeback that secured his status as an icon of the highest order; one of the towering figures of the American century.
Why Sinatra Matters 
by Pete Hamill
Click here to find out more
A combination biography and cultural analysis by the author of A Drinking Life (1993). 
In Hamill's view, Frank Sinatra was important for two reasons. First, Sinatra represented the fulfillment of the American Dream. A first generation Italian, young Sinatra experienced anti-immigrant biases firsthand. Yet for all its flaws, America still offered substantial opportunity, and by the time he was 15, Sinatra dreamed of singing professionally. Of course, he accomplished this and more, but throughout, Hamill asserts, Sinatra the superstar never forgot his humble roots. Second, Sinatra gave us a new sound, the "urban American voice." When Sinatra broke onto the scene in the early 1940s, the avuncular and soothing Bing Crosby was the singer. But Sinatra's songs were very different, edgier, more passionate, with a fair amount of swagger, yet always returning to what Hamill argues was Sinatra's central theme, loneliness. A heartfelt and intelligent tribute to Ol' Blue Eyes.

Sinatra! the Song Is You : A Singer's Art 
by Will Friedwald
Click here to find out more
Not surprisingly, most of Frank Sinatra's biographers have raked through the muck of the singer's marriages, divorces, mob connections, and outbursts of foul-mouthed misogyny. Will Friedwald takes a different tack. Oh, the biographical facts are there, but Friedwald is mostly interested in the Voice -- that irresistible, inimitable instrument, the absence of which would punch a major hole in the soundtrack of life. This is certainly the best book ever written on Sinatra's music, which means that it sheds a great deal of light on American pop music in general. And while Friedwald gets downright rhapsodic when it comes to the career highlights, he's not afraid to tweak Ol' Blue Eyes when he comes up with a dud.

Less a group biography than a series of impressionistic snapshots, the book is loaded with can't-miss material--the dirt on the making of Ocean's Eleven, info about Sinatra's wild stint as a casino owner, deep background on Peter Lawford's habit of introducing Jack Kennedy to glamorous starlets, wiretap transcripts of mobsters Sam Giancana and Johnny Formosa discussiong Dean Martin's lack of respect.

Frank Sinatra Duets
Customer Comments (Kamil Kuznik (gandahar@polbox.com) from Zabrze, Poland , January 8, 1999)
Best for studying jazz-vocalists 
Some books with mousic score and lyrics are not available in other countries except the land of their authors. It's difficult situation for those, who are studying jazz in Europe, for example. That's why Internet shopping make impossible things possible. That's why I'm so happy, that I can listen beautiful jazz standards performed by unforgettable Frank Sinatra and guests and now I can see the lyrics, notes and I can learn them. It's amazing. This book will help me learn more american jazz standards, more english, and give me lots of satisfaction singing them with my jazz band.

Why Sinatra Matters
by Pete Hamill
The book is a valedictory tribute--an extended essay, really--in the form of a biographical sketch that follows its subject up through the mid-'50s (struggling Sinatra interests Hamill far more than  imperial Sinatra). Along the way, Hamill also finds room for such germane, if unexpected, material as a minitreatise on US immigration in the early years of this century; a lambasting of Prohibition; and a potted biography of Sinatra's favorite arranger, Nelson Riddle.
