Sinatraland: “I guess even bad television can be a force for good in the world,” Finkie Finklestein muses at the end of Kashner’s fine first novel about a man who idolizes Frank Sinatra.

It is the kind of quirky idea that makes the book fun to read, and 5/5. Kashner's (Talent for Genius: The Life and Times of Oscar Levant) hilarious debut novel reviews the life of a down-on-his-luck Hoboken, N.J., window-shade salesman through a series of.

Named a Best Book of the Year by both the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post, Sinatraland is an "uncommonly original and engaging" character study as well as a thought-provoking look at celebrity culture (The Washington Post).

As tributes to Old Blue Eyes go, Patrick Williams's SINATRALAND ranks among the most enjoyable. Williams, the composer and arranger of countless television and movie soundtracks, has gathered together some of the most gifted musicians available to form an orchestra that brilliantly sparkles on his arrangements of 12 Frank Sinatra classics.6/ The Sinatra Club was a book that I had won through the Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

I am glad that I was a recipient of this book. It deserves more than 5 stars. The Sinatra Club was an illegal after hours gambling den where the up and coming mobsters like John Gotti and other wiseguys hung out/5. This album is an unknown gem.

I can't say enough about the musicianship that is heard here when you listen to this recording. At the risk of insulting Frank fans, it has to be known that these are some of the best songs composed during the big band era of the late 30's/5.
