Dean Martin was at the heart of the ever popular "Rat Pack". Deana, born in 1948, has clear memories from this period: of her father and Marilyn Monroe doing the twist in their living room, of Frank Sinatra dressing her in his tux. This is her revealing and affectionate biography of her father.

Details

A revealing and affectionate biography of the legendary Dean Martin by his daughter Deana. 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.
