Memories Are Made of This Summary


Memories Are Made of This: Dean Martin Through His Daughter's Eyes by Deana Martin

From the outside Dean Martin had it all - after a series of popular albums and films, he had the trappings of wealth and success and yet, sometimes, to his daughter Deana, he seemed like the most solitary man in the world. In Memories are Made of This Deana reveals how her father's relationship with her mother broke down. She describes his partnership with Jerry Lewis, who idolized Dean in a way that suffocated him, and the huge part that Sinatra played in their lives. She evokes the glamorous world of Dean and Sinatra: as part of the Rat Pack, Hollywood and Vegas were their playground, filmstars and the Kennedys their playmates. But Deana also reveals the real man behind the image of the laid-back stage drunk - a man who worked relentlessly, a loving father and husband to his second wife who nevertheless had a string of affairs, who was kind, generous and sometimes too trusting. Packed with rich anecdotes and new information, Memories Are Made of This has the kind of insights only someone who knew Dean intimately could give.
