The definitive Streisand biography. "Perceptive, illuminating, and immensely readable". -- Hollywood Reporter

"This, at last, is the definitive Barbra book. Anne Edwards' exhaustive research, personal firsthand knowledge, and riveting style all combine in a biographical saga so awesome it ought to be a movie". -- Rex Reed

For the first time, New York Times bestselling biographer Anne Edwards tells the story-behind-the-story of the legendary Barbra Streisand, revealing the inner demons that have driven her career -- and shaped her tumultuous personal life. Based on interviews with more than 140 of Streisand's friends, family, lovers, associates, and enemies -many of whom go on the record for the first time -- Streisand takes you on a revelatory journey, from her Brooklyn beginnings to the controversies surrounding her latest movie, The Mirror Has Two Faces. Through it all, we come to know the real Barbra Streisand as we've never known her before.

"A sterling example of diva lit...never less than fascinating". -- Publishers Weekly

"Edwards brings Streisand so much to life, she leaps off the pages. It's a 'warts and all' biography in the grand tradition". -- Barbara Taylor Bradford

"A panoply of delicious tidbits...tremendously appetizing". -- Newsday
