Streisand: A Biography is much more than the story of the world's greatest living performer, how she got there, and why she remains at the top after three decades, it is also, in Anne Edward's sure hands, a compelling chronicle of a woman's fight to validate her appearance, her talent, and her right to love and be loved. Time and time again Streisand has demonstrated the ability to reinvent herself to keep pace with the continuing changes in musical taste. This updated edition of Edwards's pioneering biography chronicles her public life as a political activist as well as her private life as Mrs. James Brolin.
Anne Edwards, a fastidious researcher and accomplished writer, is the author of several bestselling biographies of notable figures, including film stars Vivien Leigh, Judy Garland, and Katharine Hepburn, as well as Margaret Mitchell.
