Frank Sinatra, reportedly in rapidly failing health, turns 82 on Dec. 12, and his mythic stature now approaches that of Elvis and Marilyn. Famous as they were, those legends haven’t inspired many good books — with the notable exception of Peter Guralnick’s Elvis tome, Last Train to Memphis — and neither, so far, has Sinatra. Only Will Friedwald, in Sinatra: The Song Is You (1995), has dealt comprehensively with the singer’s musical and interpretive genius.
