THE MIGHTY FRANKS A Memoir

by | Read by Michael Frank

Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

This is an altogether charming portrait of a close, if unusual, Hollywood family, written with exceptionally precise language from the point of view of the skilled wordsmith Michael Frank. His narration is personal, unique, and exceedingly warm. The texture of his words and the quality of his performance are so rich that the audiobook seems like fiction, though the work is not a novel. Michael's childless aunt and uncle were the skilled screenwriters who brought us the Paul Newman classic HUD. In the 1960s and '70s, they lived in the fabled West Los Angeles neighborhood of Laurel Canyon, along with such luminaries of the time as the Mamas and the Papas, Jim Morrison, and Joni Mitchell. Both family dynamics and the neighborhood "as a state of mind" are lovingly described and lavishly shared as the larger-than-life personae abound.
