This Just In
...but Buddy, I'm a Kind of Poem
An anthology of Poems about Frank Sinatra,
edited by Gilbert L. Gigliotti
Published by Entasis Press of Washington, D.C.
Publication date: January 26, 2008
GIlbert L. Gigliotti's anthology of verse referencing Old Blue Eyes in
every possible way will delight both Sinatra fans and poetry fans
alike. The sixty poets Gigliotti has included offer a multiplicity of views
that are, as Gigliotti says in his introduction to the book, "as
contradictory as the man himself . . . at times harsh, satiric,
sentimental, erotic, comic, and tragic."
