Frank Zusammenfassung

Frank: The Making of a Legend James Kaplan

Frank Sinatra was the best-known entertainer of his century - infinitely charismatic, more legendary and notorious than any other public personality of his era. But no matter what you think, you don't know him.

In this critically acclaimed biography, James Kaplan reveals how Sinatra made listening to pop music a more personal experience than it had ever been. We relive the years 1915 to 1954 in vibrant detail, experiencing as if for the first time Sinatra's journey from the streets of Hoboken, his fall from the summit of celebrity, and his Oscar-winning return in From Here to Eternity. Here is the book that, finally, gets under his skin.

Frank Bewertungen

Kaplan writes with an addictive wiliness, vigour and feeling that suit his subject...to a tee * Daily Telegraph *
Authoritative and enjoyable...important too * Sunday Times *
A wealth of entertaining detail about the singer's career, gnawing personal insecurity, lavish sexual indulgence, and obsessive musical virtuosity * Observer *
Evokes a sense of period with crackling energy * Daily Express *
Very few writers can write coherently about what makes music work. Fewer still can tell what makes it profound. Kaplan can * The Age *
At last, Sinatra has the biography he deserves * The Irish Times *
