Roman Candle: The Life of Bobby Darin
David Evanier (au)
Bobby Darin, as a performer, rivaled Frank Sinatra. Energizing the early rock-&-roll scene with his rollicking classic “Splish Splash,” Bobby then became a top-draw nightclub act. Chronic illness dogged him from childhood, setting the tone of urgency that inspired a career full of dizzying twists & turns: from teen idol to Vegas song-&-dance man, & from hipster to folkie & back. This book tracks his meteoric rise from dire poverty to his well-earned place in the showbiz pantheon. It probes the dark side of a celebrated marriage to America’s sweetheart, Sandra Dee, as well as the incredible family secret that affected Bobby to the end. A multilayered portrait of this brash, gifted artist, whose restless voice & spirit seem as alive today as ever. B&W photos.
