Publisher Description

Deana Martin's captivating, heartfelt memoir of her father, Dean Martin

Charming, debonair, and impeccably attired in a black tuxedo, Dean Martin was coolness incarnate. His music provided the soundtrack of romance, and his image captivated movie and television audiences for more than fifty years. His daughter Deana was among his most devoted fans, but she also knew a side of him that few others ever glimpsed.

In this heartfelt memoir, Deana recalls the constantly changing blended family that marked her youth, along with the unexpected moments of silliness and tenderness that this unusual Hollywood family shared. She candidly reveals the impact of Dean’s fame and characteristic aloofness, but delights in sharing wonderful, never-before-told stories about her father and his pallies known as the Rat Pack. This enchanting account of life as the daughter of one of Hollywood’s sexiest icons will leave you entertained, delighted, and nostalgic for a time gone by.

Loved this book

This book brought back so many memories of my own father. He love Frank Sinantra, and our house was filled with his music. To love Frank was to love Dean. The author's details helped me to remember all the little things I had forgotten. When's father passed away I remember taking some of his shirts so I could wear them and think of him similar to Deana. There are certain smells that remind me of him too; every time I hear a Sinatra or Martin song I have to stop what I'm doing, close my eyes and just reminisce. Thank you for sharing part of your life with me and for bring my younger years back to memory.
