Sinatra Book Launch Is Saucy!

Photos From Sinatra Book Launch Party At New Haven’s Sally’s APizza

I have never been to a book launch party at a pizzeria, but the release of Sinatra & Me by Franz Douskey is unlike any other book I’ve promoted.  So when I joined two colleagues to take a two-hour train from Grand Central Station in Manhattan to Sally’s Apizza in New Haven, Connecticut, I knew we were in for a treat.

The book, an intimate look at Frank Sinatra and the life of an iconic singer and actor, was based on dozens of hours of interviews with Tony Consiglio, the man who was closest to Frank Sinatra and who spent three decades on the road with him.  Consiglio died in 2008 but Douskey, a writer whose last book was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, was able to capture Consiglio’s account of his friendship with Ol’ Blue Eyes by piecing together dozens of taped interviews they had conducted in the 2000’s.

Sinatra & Me is the first non-fiction print book for Tantor, one of the nation’s top three audiobook publishers.  Tantor, based in Connecticut, has launched a line of books that will be released simultaneously as print, e-book, and audiobook.
