Barbra Streisand Announces Memoir 'My Name Is Barbra'
Arriving in November
Published Feb 07, 2023At long last, Barbra Streisand has written a memoir. The very famous, very accomplished EGOT winner's very long autobiography (1,040 pages!) is called My Name Is Barbra and will arrive November 7 via Penguin Random House.
Streisand has lived a storied and boundary-breaking career, so this book is likely to put all 1,040 pages to good use. Penguin Random House describes the memoir like this:
The book is, like Barbra herself, frank, funny, opinionated, and charming. She recounts her early struggles to become an actress, eventually turning to singing to earn a living; the recording of some of her acclaimed albums; the years of effort involved in making Yentl; her direction of The Prince of Tides; her friendships with figures ranging from Marlon Brando to Madeleine Albright; her political advocacy; and the fulfillment she's found in her marriage to James Brolin.
If that sounds up your alley, you can pre-order the book here. And while you're at it, go ahead and revisit this performance of her "One Less Bell to Answer/A House Is Not a Home" medley (which she performs as a duet with herself), just for fun.
