'I have been patiently waiting for Barbra Streisands autobiography for 54 years.My Name is Barbra is a Streisand obsessives dream come true.

There are just so many scintillating Streisands to contemplate over so many years: singer, actress, director, producer, philanthropist, activist, lover, mother, wife, friend, autobiographer. . .
