Frank Sinatra Has a Cold, written by Gay Talese, set out for Los Angeles with an assignment from Esquire to write a major profile on Frank Sinatra in the winter of 1965. When he arrived, he found the singer and his vigilant entourage on the defensive: Sinatra was under the weather and not willing to be interviewed. Undeterred, Talese stayed in L.A., believing Sinatra might recover and reconsider observing the star from a distance and interviewed his friends, associates and family members. Sinatra never did grant the one-on-one he had hoped for, but Talese’s profile went down in history as a tour de force of literary nonfiction and the advent of the “New Journalism.” Its incisive portrait of Sinatra in the recording studio, on location, out on the town, and with the eponymous cold, revealed as much about a singular star persona as it did about the Hollywood machine. This Collector’s Edition of 5000 numbered copies, is published in traditional letterpress, with an introduction, facsimile reproductions of manuscript pages, correspondence, and original storyboard, revealing the making of this New Journalism marvel. To complete the Sinatra picture, the text and archival material is interwoven with photographs of Sinatra from the legendary lens of Phil Stern, the only photographer granted access to Sinatra over four decades, as well as from top photojournalists of the ’60s including John Bryson, John Dominis, and Terry O’Neill. Reproduced in rich duotone, the photographs compliment Talese’s character study. Hardcover in slipcase, 244 pages.
