Description

From the author of The Day Diana Died and The Day John Died comes this fascinating New York Times bestseller about one of the greatest legends who ever lived--Barbra Streisand--revealing an up-close, intimate portrait of the woman behind the star.

She is a global icon, the ultimate diva, the Brooklyn girl made good, the ugly duckling who blossomed into a modern-day Nefertiti, the Oscar-winning actress and bona fide movie mogul, and arguably the greatest female singer who has ever lived. Yet even to the multitudes who idolize her, Streisand has remained aloof, unknowable, tantalizingly beyond reach . . . until now.

Drawing from in-depth interviews with eyewitnesses to her remarkable life and career, #1 New York Times bestselling author Christopher Andersen paints a fascinating, startling portrait of Barbra Joan Streisand--the artist, the woman, a true American original.
