In 1960, she was a 17-year-old Brooklyn kid with plenty of talent but no connections, and certainly no money. Her mother brought her soup to make sure she stayed fed as she took acting classes and scraped out a living. Just four years later, Barbra Streisand was the top-selling female recording artist in America and the star of one of Broadway's biggest hits. This biography by gay author William J. Mann tells the riveting behind-the-scenes story of her dizzying ascent, of how Streisand and her team transformed her from an unknown dreamer into a worldwide superstar. Drawing on the private papers of Jerome Robbins and Bob Fosse, and interviewing scores of the friends and lovers who knew Barbara before she became Barbra, Mann recreates the vanished world of 1960s New York City and uncovers the truth behind the myths of her formative years: the Streisand who emerges is a young woman who, for all her tough-skinned ambition, was surprisingly vulnerable in love.
