"The first pop superstar"; "simply the best, no one else even comes close": Such swooning accolades of Frank Sinatra rolled in long before his death in 1998. For most of us, the peaks and broad outlines of his life are well-known: his Hoboken, New Jersey birth to immigrant parents; his rise to fame with Tommy Dorsey's band; his Oscar-winning performances, Broadway musical triumphs, and success on television and in nightclubs. What James Kaplan's 800-page biography achieves goes far beyond a skeletal view of this enigmatic, driven, talented man. Simply definitive; now in paperback and NOOK Book.
