Frank Sinatra Has a Cold is a profile of Frank Sinatra written by Gay Talese for the April 1966 issue of Esquire Magazine.

Talese followed Sinatra for three months without speaking a word to him, but talking to everyone around him and observing all the details surrounding the character.  The text is one of the seminal works of New Journalism and is still widely read, discussed and studied.
