Sinatra once told a man there was too much of his life he wasn't proud of. The person who penned this novel has a history for her "controversial biographies". Let's also note that too much of this material "conveniently" fell into her hands from sources who couldn't clear things up (see: Peter Lawford). I believe Sinatra had a right to tell his own life his way, if he chose to do so at all. What Miss Kitty/Rita Skeeter did here was/is slanderous. Maybe I'm biased by thinking that there's too much about him that nobody needs to know, much less want to. He was famous, sure, but he was human too. I can't wait to write a bio on you, Kitty. RIP, Frank...
Well, I was sorry to read about his very bad temper and his unforgiving attitudes. However, I don't think he got to that point alone. I found this book to be well written and fascinating. But it made me sad that once again a star of such fame paid such a high price. It didn't change my mind about his movies or his music. I watch and listen on a regular basis. Must be very difficult for his family. I really do think he was a product of that time period. God Bless Sinatra family.
