Frank Zusammenfassung

Frank: The Making of a Legend James Kaplan

Who was Frank Sinatra? And how did who he was lead to him creating such incomparable music? In FRANK, fans finally have a biography that goes more deeply into who he really was than any previous book about this extraordinary man. Sinatra was a bundle of contradictions. At once both spoiled and neglected by his tough, clever, insensitive parents, he grew up convinced of his special destiny and agonisingly lonely. He came to define modern manhood, yet in many ways he never grew up. In this book, we relive the years 1915 to 1954 in glistening detail, experiencing as if for the first time Sinatra's journey from the streets, his fall from the apex of celebrity, and his Oscar-winning return in From Here to Eternity. Here at last is the biographer who makes the reader feel what it was really like to be Frank Sinatra - with the biography that, finally, gets under his skin.

Frank Bewertungen

"Wonderfully vivid.... The story of Frank Sinatra's rise and self-invention and the story of his fall and remarkable comeback had the lineaments of the most essential American myths, and their telling, Pete Hamill once argued, required a novelist, 'some combination of Balzac and Raymond Chandler, ' who might 'come closer to the elusive truth than an autobiographer as courtly as Sinatra will ever allow himself to do.' Now, with FRANK: THE VOICE, Sinatra has that chronicler in James Kaplan, who has produced a book that has all the emotional detail and narrative momentum of a novel. Kaplan writes with genuined sympathy for the singer and a deep appreciation of his musicianship, and devotes the better part of his book to an explication of Sinatra's art: the real reason readers care about him in the first place. "--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times" " Monumental... FRANK: THE VOICE is a timely reminder of what all the fuss over Sin
