The name alone summons flashes of brilliant talent and temperament, explosive outbursts of demonstrative power, and an untamed ego. But who is the real Barbra Streisand; the Jewish girl from Flatbush, who grew up to become the biggest multi-media star of her generation?

Randall Riese has uncovered the fascinating, startling and often disturbing facts of Streisand's life. Her Name is Barbra is based on hundreds of interviews, personal anecdotes, archival information, court records and various other sources. Ambitious in scale, it is filled with fascinating detail and imbued with intimacy. Compassionate yet revealing, Her Name is Barbra is worthy of its legendary subject.

About the Author:

Randall Riese is a film historian, researcher and author. His previous books, including The Unabridged Marilyn and The Unabridged James Dean were critically acclaimed for their exhaustive research.

From AudioFile:

Barbra Streisand is show business--a legend in our time. Born in Brooklyn in 1942, she always wanted to be an actress. Her name was a proverbial household word by the mid-1960's. This handy program puts her life into perspective, telling what happened, when, and who else was involved. Some dialogue occurs; however, it's largely indistinguishable from the body of the narrative. Reader Isabel Liss makes no attempt to copy Barbra's inimitable style or to imitate the voices of her cohorts. Also, the program contains no music. Reading somewhat like an encyclopedia article, the program is a timely, basic, reasonably entertaining source of information. D.W.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
