SinatraBook1

 

As a singer and actor, Frank Sinatra captured the hearts and the imagination of the public as few others have. During his lifetime he was alternately adored and vilified; he was viewed as a great lover but accused of abusing the women in his life; he was seen as a compassionate, generous man, while at the same time he was linked to some of the nation's most calculating and corrupt criminals. Sorting through these many contradictions and separating fact from fiction as only someone close to him could, Tina Sinatra comes forward with a full biography of her father that provides a clear-eyed look behind the scenes at a life that was full of incongruity, but always lived to the fullest. The world may remember Frank Sinatra as one of show business's greatest, but in this eagerly awaited biography, Tina remembers him as something more: a father and a man. 313 pages.

SinatraBook2

The book is a valedictory tribute--an extended essay, really--in the form of a biographical sketch that follows its subject up through the mid-'50s (struggling Sinatra interests Hamill far more than imperial Sinatra). Along the way, Hamill also finds room for such germane, if unexpected, material as a minitreatise on US immigration in the early years of this century; a lambasting of Prohibition; and a potted biography of Sinatra's favorite arranger, Nelson Riddle. 185 pages.

In "That's Amore: A Son Remembers Dean Martin", Ricci Martin reveals the husband and father few people knew, a man who hated parties, adored his mother-in-law, and found utter contentment in a slice of buttered bread. Ricci takes readers on a tour through his childhood, from the star-studded parties to the exploration of "three marriages, eight kids, one family," to the treasured one-on-one time he shared with his father. He also discusses Dean's first meeting with Jerry Lewis and divulges his father's version of the Martin and Lewis breakup. Ricci Martin addresses the key relationships in his father's life, allowing readers to view the Rat Pack years, "The Dean Martin Show," and Dean's divorce from Jeanne through a son's eyes.

That's Amore reveals the triumphs, tragedies, and escapades that colored Ricci's childhood, including his brother Dean Paul's death. More than 100 photos from the private Martin family album enhance Ricci Martin's portrait of his father, creating a complete, honest picture of the Rat Pack legend.

About the Author
Ricci Martin is the youngest son of Dean and Jeanne Martin. That's Amore is his first book. He lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.

DeanBook2

Usually depicted only as a hard-playing, hard-boozing Rat Packer with a dark side, Dean Martin had a much more complex character than the popular portrait suggests. A singer, actor, and comedian, he was more than anything an entertainer of the variety that no longer exists. Martini Man: The Life of Dean Martin goes beyond the simple caricature of the boozy lounge singer with a penchant for racy humor to reveal the substantive man behind that mirthful mask.

DeanBook


The book begins at the conception of the show and explains how Martin's strange schedule of only working one day a week came about. He later said that he didn't really want to do a TV variety show, so he came up with a list for NBC that he thought they'd never agree to, including an enormous budget and the clause that Martin would only work on Sunday. Surprisingly, they bought it, and it turned out to be the very thing that made the show successful. Martin would show up on Sunday just before the taping and wing it. The less he knew about the show, the more spontaneous and "live" it seemed to the audience.
In the introduction Hale warns that it may seem as though considerable name dropping occurs in this book, but that's just the way it was on the show. The simple, straightforward way this story is told keeps the names from taking on more importance than they deserve. The focus remains tightly on the show overall.
 This story is interesting not only for its insights into those stars' true natures, but also for its backstage peek at how television shows were run. From the exciting newness and discovery of making a show work in the beginning to the slow decline at the end, Backstage at the Dean Martin Show is a warm and touching memoir.

The Life of Sammy Davis, Jr.

 

Overview:
Wil Haygood takes us back to the era of vaudeville, where it all began for four-year-old Sammy, who ran out onstage one night and stole the show. From then on it was a motherless childhood on the road, singing and dancing his way across a segregated America with his father and the formidable showman Will Mastin, struggling together to survive the Depression and the demise of vaudeville itself. Haygood brings Sammy's showbiz life into full relief against the backdrop of an America in the throes of racial change.

A major reappraisal of the life of legendary entertainer Sammy Davis, Jr., Gonna Do Great Things is at once an intimate portrait and an exuberant celebration of a wholly American icon.
