Sinatra: The Chairman by James Kaplan


Reviewed by Stephanie R (Library Staff)

2015 was the 100th birthday of one Francis Albert Sinatra. What better way to celebrate than to read Sinatra: The Chairman, the brilliant follow-up to Frank: The Voice by James Kaplan? Picking up immediately where the previous volume left off, The Chairman sees Frank, once dejected and a Hollywood pariah, at the top of his game after winning the Oscar for From Here to Eternity. The scope of Kaplan’s work is staggering and the details fascinating. Whether listening to the brilliant audio CD or reading this impressive tome, you are in for a treat and an in-depth history of one of Hollywood’s biggest enigmas.
