Gary Giddins’ new biography of Bing Crosby, nearly two decades in the making (“part one” was released at the beginning of this century) should be the kind of book that’s right up my alley. It’s more than 700 pages long, covering exactly six years of Crosby’s life. Yup, it just focuses on “the war years,” 1940-1946.
You know those people who bore us on social media with pictures of what they eat for lunch every day?
That’s this book.
