Manson, Sinatra and Me is a Hollywood
party girl's memoir that details her encounters with former Presidents,
Senators, Congressmen, foreign dignitaries, celebrities, sports stars,
businessmen - you name it - including the likes of Frank Sinatra and
other members of the Rat Pack. The average man or woman may not have
heard of Virginia Graham, but everybody in the know was aware of what
her game was as a key player in the Hollywood Screw System.
Virginia found herself in trouble with the law, she ended up in jail.
Yet somehow she continued to meet interesting people - like Susan
Atkins, her cellmate, who confessed to Virginia about how she had
butchered Sharon Tate and her unborn child. Atkins also told how she and
her friends, all members of the Manson Family, were involved in what
has become known as the Tate/LaBianca murders.
Virginia reveals the
true story behind Susan Atkins' prison confession about the Manson
Murders, what led to her becoming a key witness for District Attorney
Vincent Bugliosi in the Helter Skelter case, and why she went into
hiding after the trial ended. Virginia's testimony helped save the lives
of many Hollywood celebrities, and she received recognition from
Elizabeth Taylor for doing so.
