Description

"Masterful... Many books have been written about Streisand but few, if any, put readers as close to the subject as Mann does" (Miami Herald).

A legendary singer, songwriter, actress, and filmmaker with multiple Academy, Emmy, Grammy, Tony, and even two Peabody awards to her name, Barbara Streisand is a talent like no other. In Hello, Gorgeous, celebrity biographer William J. Mann profiles the Brooklyn-born talent, focusing on her early years, honing her persona at Greenwich Village nightclubs like the Blue Angel and the Bon Soir.

Streisand lost her father at an early age and had a rocky relationship with her mother, but her natural abilities and supernatural chutzpah soon earned her the role of a lifetime: a starring role as Fanny Brice in the Broadway musical, Funny Girl.

In lush detail, Mann chronicles Streisand's dizzying ascent from an unknown dreamer into one of the world's most beloved superstars.

"Mann's meticulous research and insightful analysis go deeper than any previous biography: shedding light on the formative years that shaped Streisand's persona, debunking some myths... and providing a cultural snapshot of the wild and free-spirited era in which Streisand blossomed." -- USA Today
