This darkly brilliant first novel portrays the inner life of a demented, obsessive Sinatra fan - 'Finkie' Finkelstein, a down-on-his-luck New Jersey salesman. To Finkie, Frank is the model of a man: elegant, sophisticated, talented, with charm to spare. Finkie models his life on his idol: seen all of the movies, bought all of the records, even formed his own Rat pack. By turns riotous and poignant, the novel lays bare the most twisted corners of the male mind, introducing a remarkable character - and a talented new writer. 'a sparkling literary talent' - Publishers Weekly
