Revue de presse

The widow of Frank Sinatra delivers the goods in this intimate memoir of their years tiogether... Probing Sinatra's personality, she contrasts his polite manners and loyalty to friends with his feuds and booze-induced rants. Yet in the end, as she sees it, 'Frank was the most romantic man I ever met,' and that feeling permeates the pages throughout. (Publishers' Weekly)

An engaging read (Mail on Sunday)

Barbara Sinatra, the singer's final - and longest-serving - wife, has written a revealing memoir of their fiery days and nights (Telegraph)

At its heart, this autobiography is a simple story of an enduring love affair, and the unprecedented glimpse is less about the man who has already been dissected in dozens of books, and more about a woman whom the reader quickly discovers is quite interesting in her own right . . . Frank Sinatra lived 82 years, dying in Barbara's arms more than a decade ago. After reading this book, it's easy to conclude that he was the lucky one for finding such a strong, wise and fun-loving soul mate. (Denver Post)

Barbara Sinatra has turned in a genuine love story about the man with whom she shared a life. (Chicago Sun Times)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Thirty years after she first heard his voice singing to her from a jukebox at her local drive-in, Barbara began her love affair with Frank Sinatra. After a tempestuous courtship, she finally heard him say the wedding vows that began his fourth, final, and most enduring marriage; one that would last more than two decades until the end of his life. Generous and jealous, witty and wicked, Frank comes alive in this poignant inside story of the highs and lows of marriage to one of the world's most famous men. In this, her first public love letter to the husband she adored, his wife celebrates the sensational singer, sexy heartthrob, possessive mate, and loyal friend that was Frank Sinatra.

This book will let his legions of fans see another side of "Ol' Blue Eyes." Though Frank Sinatra's children have written memoirs about their father, this is the first time his wife of twenty-two years is sharing intimate details of life with the man and the legend.

Par Jane Pensive - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
...Barbara's sins. Having read George Jacobs' book about his boss a number of years ago, I hadn't thought about "Old Blue eyes" for a while. I remember that Jacobs was not complimentary about the last Mrs Sinatra. Before I bought this book, I read the reviews in which one mentioned Tina Sinatra's book and it's accusations against Frank's final wife. Of course I had to buy both books to take on vacation with me. I read Barbara's book first to see if I could spot where the accusations in Tina's book would appear. Barbara Sinatra is so transparent that I could spot almost every one of her misdeeds against Frank and his children. This despite the fact that Barbara never mentions Frank's two daughters at all and mentions Frank Jr only a couple of times in passing.

Barbara basically admits each and every allegation Tina makes by addressing them as incidents in which others are the primary movers and shakers, and in which she plays a passive role. For example, Tina states that Barbara tried to get Frank to legally adopt Barbara's 25 year old son in order to make him Frank's legal heir. Barbara claims that it was Sinatra's idea to adopt a 25 year old man because he didn't have a father. Huh? The problem is that Barbara, by her own admission and Tina's account, tried to pull the same scheme on her second husband, Zeppo Marx, who she admits, didn't really like her son, and whose father would not allow such an adoption. Tina explains that the adoption was absolutely going to take place until her mother, Frank's first wife and the mother of his three children, asked him to halt the proceedings as he was making his first family extremely unhappy.

Barbara completely glosses over the fact that she manipulated Sinatra into having his first marriage, a Catholic marriage recognized by the church, annulled! This after Sinatra had been married three times, and his children were well into their adult years. Tina explains that Barbara befriended a priest who saw donation dollar signs and found a "loophole" by which Sinatra could have his marriage to Nancy Sr erased. This was actually accomplished and the newly converted Catholic Barbara became the only Mrs Sinatra recognized by the church.

Of course to get to more of Frank's money, Barbara had to get rid of the prenup she signed. In her book she claims it was presented to her shortly before her wedding with no time to consult a lawyer (thereby making the contract unenforceable). Tina explains it was given to Barbara well in advance of the wedding with the advice to have a lawyer review it. Tina also details the fact that when Barbara was in charge of her husband's life, he was suffering from dementia for at least a good part of it thus making Sinatra easy prey for Barbara's schemes to increase her share of Sinatra's estate. Tina shares with the reader that someone once described Barbara as Anne Baxter's character in "All About Eve," and I have to say that about sums up her modus operandi throughout her life. By her own account, Barbara used her first husband to catapult herself out from under her mother's thumb; she used Zeppo Marx to catapult herself out of working as a Vegas showgirl, and also someone who "dressed up" gambling rooms after her shows (I read that as a gambling shill) learning to hide gambling chips to increase her show girl income; and she used Sinatra to get away from Zeppo, who though wealthy, wasn't generous with her in terms of letting her spend whatever she wanted.

Although reading both books the way I did was highly entertaining while sitting on the beach, I am sure Sinatra's first family didn't find their experiences in dealing with Barbara enjoyable at all. If Barbara Sinatra thought she would take control of the story of her life with "Old Blue Eyes," it didn't work. Her naked greed and cunning shine through both accounts in my opinion. Don't read this account without reading Tina's book as well or you won't get the whole story.

I am a huge fan of Frank Sinatra. I've read most of the biographies written about him and was eagerly awaiting Barbara Sinatra's book. I was not disappointed. It is definitely a loving portrait, but she does discuss Frank's quick temper and other bad qualities. The book is full of loving anecdotes (love notes, gifts, etc.) and I feel that Barbara loved Frank very deeply. One of my favorite anecdotes is Barbara's mother answering the phone and Frank, thinking it was Barbara, said something romantic and sexy. Barbara's mother immediately swooned and realized that no one could resist his charm.

One thing that may surprise people is that Frank's children are not mentioned. Frank Jr. is mentioned once or twice in passing, but his daughters are not mentioned at all. If anyone has read Tina Sinatra's book, this is understandable. Barbara does cover some of the issues Tina brought up in her book, but doesn't specifically address allegations made by Tina and Nancy Sinatra. (I believe that for the most part, Frank Jr. has stayed out of that particular battle). It is up to the reader to determine what the 'real story' is after reading multiple accounts.

Barbara obviously enjoyed living the high life. On nearly every page, she drops names, but when you are hanging out with Cary Grant and Gregory Peck, wouldn't you? She also is very interested in fashion and documents several memorable outfits over the years and spends some time discussing the many jewels Frank presented to her, including a stunning Cartier necklace. The beginning of the book documents Barbara's life pre-Frank, from living in a small Missouri town to her marriage to Zeppo Marx. It is interesting and she obviously had a remarkable life, but I think she knows what most readers want and that is tales from her life with Frank. She may not delve as deep as some may hope, but there are many stories, such as tales of romantic parties and exciting vacations, Frank's legendary temper and stubbornness, the scandal their affair caused, and Frank's gradual slowing down.

All in all, this is an enjoyable read and one that any Sinatra fan will appreciate for the glimpse behind the curtain.

Par P from Oregon - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book, I felt, is a very sanitized and selective account by Mrs. Barbara Sinatra of her life with her husband, Frank. She comes across as a very shallow woman who was lucky enough being in the right place at the right time in Mr. Sinatra's life when he was ready to settle down. I would not recommend this nauseating, name dropping book by Barbara Sinatra, Tina Sinatra's book was more human and loving and gave more insight into the legend, Frank Sinatra. The only pleasure I got from this book was the fast and excellent service by Amazon.com in receiving it.

If you want to waste your money on a book that tells you absolutely nothing new nor of any interest about Frank Sinatra then this is your book. If, however, you want to hear about all the famous people Barbara Sinatra met, only through her association with him, on every single page, or how much influence she had over him, how much he loved her more than anybody else and how fabulous she thinks she is, then go at it. Take special notice that she wants a Rolls Royce for her birthday and a close friend chose a charitable gift for theirs. It told me everything about this weightless human being.

The only thing I can hope is that Frank wasn't as shallow and without substance as this vapid woman is and would have, if he had been younger when he met her, have had his fun and moved on. Ava may have been a lot of self-destructive things, but she at least had a personality unlike no other. Not only that, but it's the last thing on earth that Frank would've wanted - to have anyone be BORED, which I was. What a disappointing book from a disappointing woman. Wasteful, really, when you think of the massive opportunity she had to be interesting. Pearls before swine, I suppose.

At the beginning the audiobook, that I borrowed from my local library, the author informs us that she's a private person who had no desire to write a book but publishing professonals convinced her that she had an interesting story to tell.

She should have trusted her instincts.
