This a very interesting book. I could not put it down until I finished it. Deana Martin is the 4th child of Dean Martin's. Mr. Martin is not always kind to his wives or kids. He has loyalties to his family and friends, but not consistently.
Deana deals with his 20 year act with Jerry Lewis and their break up. Interestingly, Jerry Lewis writes the foreword of the book.
She gets down into her father's personality and has an insiders view of his life, loves, and dilikes. A great read!
This picture of Dean Martin through his daughter's eyes is very interesting. He was a complex man. He was all I suspected he would be and more. There was much to admire and some aspects of his life that were very sad. Lots of "insider"stories . A view into an interesting and creative life.
This book gives a little different picture of his life tan the last one I read but still doesnt sugar coat the unsavory details.
Excellent memoir read by Dean's daughter, Deana
I enjoyed this book, even though it showed me a side of Dean Martin I didn't know about. I'd always "assumed" he was a true family man, but his daughter tells a different story. While I have no doubt he loved his children, he seems to have been (like some men of that generation)the kind of person where children were seen but not heard. Thanks to his daughter, Deana, for writing such a truthful book.
