Abstract:

Sinatra has been reviled for his public bad temper as much as he is loved for his music. But the man we meet in these pages is Sinatra the artist and performer, the master interpreter of the best American songs. He began as a young man with no apparent talent, and went on to accomplish what most people can only dream of. While the Big Band era was going strong he became its first major pop singer. He was the biggest name in radio when the country was united by the airwaves. He convinced Gene Kelly to teach him how to dance and became the star of MGM musicals. His love affair with Ava Gardner was conducted on the front pages, shocking the public, but no apologies were made.

And when it looked like his career was over, he turned a role as a scrawny loser into an Oscar winning performance.
