I am a symmetrical man, almost to a fault," Frank Sinatra once said. It is a peculiar statement, because Sinatra is precisely asymmetrical. How to reconcile the enchanting crooner and the explosive bully? What to make of the smooth tones of his voice and the rough edges of his persona? To find the true correspondence between the public and the private Sinatra, the artist and the man, is no easy task. John Lahr, drama critic for The New Yorker and one of the finest writers on the performing arts working today, has done just this in Sinatra: The Artist and the ManLahr traces the trajectory of the "solitary latchkey kid" from Hoboken, New Jersey, into the stratosphere of fame. Sinatra kept company with presidents and mobsters; he kept up the front of a happy family life for as long as he could and then took up with the most desired women in the world--Ava Gardner, Lauren Bacall, Anita Ekberg, Marilyn Monroe, and many, many more. He led a life of manic gregariousness, yet spoke to the romance and loneliness of the "wee small hours of the morning." He desperately needed to exist within the gaze of the audience but at the same time would express aloofness toward his fans, saying he was happiest "when I'm onstage all by myself with an orchestra and nobody to bug me." Sinatra: The Artist and the Man also examines the miracle of Sinatra's return--much of what is marvelous about Sinatra today is that we know who he is at all, so far did he fall in arts and literature,arts music and photography,biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,entertainers,home and garden,humor and entertainment,jazz Entertainers, Random House

New Yorker drama critic John Lahr reveals how the tempestuous man invented the brilliant artist. With one hundred of the greatest photographs ever taken of Frank Sinatra -- some quite rare -- and over a dozen exclusive to this volume. To find the true correspondence between the public and the private Sinatra, the artist and the man, is no easy task. How to reconcile the enchanting crooner and the explosive bully? What to make of the smooth tones of his voice and the rough edges of his persona? John Lahr, one of the finest writers on the performing arts working today, examines just these contradictions while tracing the trajectory of the "solitary latchkey kid" from Hoboken, New Jersey, into the stratosphere of fame -- where Sinatra thought he could find, as Lahr writes, "an empyrean where no one could touch or judge him". This volume also collects the best photographs ever taken of Sinatra -- some never before published -- from Weegee's hilarious pictures of bobbysoxer hysteria to William Read Woodfield's definitive anti rare "Chairman of the Board" images. Also represented are the films, the recording sessions, and the many swinging nights of this complex and fascinating man. Sinatra:: The Artist and the Man Lahr, John / Evans, Abbott, Random House
