This is a terrific, short but insightful tribute to Frank Sinatra by the marvelous writer Pete Hamill. He traces Sinatra's dual character and emphasis on loneliness to his childhood as an only child in Hoboken, N.J., growing up during prohibition and later the Depression. Hamill also explains why Sinatra's music will live for a long time. A fast and absorbing read.
