Brought to you by Penguin.The exhilarating and startlingly honest autobiography of the living legend. The long-awaited memoir by the icon of stage, screen and music. This audiobook is read by Barbra Streisand. It features Barbra Streisand's iconic music, interlaced with exclusive anecdotes for the My Name is Barbra audio edition.Barbra Streisand is by any account a living legend, a woman who in a career spanning six decades has excelled in every area of entertainment. She is among the handful of EGOT winners (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) and has one of the greatest and most recognizable voices in popular music.Streisand's memoir reveals a voice on the page that is every bit as heartfelt, entertaining and spectacular as her best performances. There's the chilling story, which she's never told before, of the origins of her legendary stage fright. There's a hilarious opening line to James Brolin, who she's been with for 27 years. There's a page and a half correcting the record on the Streisand Effect, a term that refers to the way efforts to minimize a story can backfire, generating exponentially more press. As Vanity Fair said: 'if Barbra could plug away for 10 years writing this exhaustive, exhilarating account of her life- then we can do her the courtesy of reading it from start to finish.''Exhilarating ... leaves blood on the page ... My Name Is Barbra is 992 pages of startling honesty and self-reflection, deadpan parenthetical asides (including a running bit about how much she loves going to the dentist), encyclopaedic recall of onstage outfits, and rigorous analyses of her films' Vanity Fair'Glorious, exuberant, chatty and candid, a victory lap past all who ever doubted, diminished or dissed her, with lingering high fives for the many supporters . . . generous dollops of chutzpah ... Nobody puts Barbra in the corner.' New York Times'The book is crammed with delicious details of backstage arguments, bewildered suitors and at least one incident of falling off a London bus' BBC(c)2023 Barbra Streisand (P)2023 Penguin Audio
