For The Love Of Frank

June 2024
1min read

I’d like to thank David Lehman for his wonderfully written article “Frankophilia” (November/December 2002). Man, you got it! I’m just a punk kid, but reading your essay shone some light on a dreary day. A friend gave me this magazine and said, “Look, it’s Sinatra.” I spent the next hour reading and rereading it until I had it memorized. It’s comforting to know there are others who listen to his music as I do. I love that line “I jump out of bed in the morning singing ‘It All Depends on You’ and your voice comes out of my mouth.” That’s me, right there.
