A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER and THE TIMES MUSIC BOOK OF THE YEAR 2023. The exhilarating and startlingly honest autobiography of the living legend.

‘Over almost a thousand pages, the diva to end them all documents her rise to the top and the tears and joys that went with it ÔÇŽ What really brings this alive is Barbra StreisandÔÇÖs admission of the insecurity that drives her.’ The Times

‘Exhilarating ÔÇŽ leaves blood on the page ÔÇŽ My Name Is Barbra is 992 pages of startling honesty and self-reflection, deadpan parenthetical asides, encyclopedic recall of onstage outfits, and rigorous analyses of her films’ Vanity Fair

‘I have been patiently waiting for Barbra StreisandÔÇÖs autobiography for 54 yearsÔÇŽ.My Name is Barbra is a Streisand obsessiveÔÇÖs dream come true. It addresses all the rumours and misrepresentations of her long and extraordinary life, from nearly missing out on A Star is Born to dating Pierre Trudeau, Omar Sharif and Marlon Brando. The wait has been worth every word!’ ÔÇô Richard E Grant, Sunday Times

ÔÇśThe mother of all memoirsÔÇÖ New Yorker

ÔÇśA brilliant memoirÔÇÖ Hillary Clinton

ÔÇśGlorious, exuberant, chatty and candid, a 970-page victory lap past all who ever doubted, diminished or dissed her . . . generous dollops of chutzpah ÔÇŽ Nobody puts Barbra in the cornerÔÇÖ New York Times

ÔÇśMystical, messy, bawdy and funny ÔÇŽ My Name is Barbra confides her insecurities and a ravening hunger for fame ÔÇŽ silent but eloquent and vociferous writing’ Peter Conrad, The Observer

ÔÇśAt heart this is a story so bursting with life, fury, unbelievable ambition and food (Streisand loves to eat) that you come away from it exhausted but smiling ÔÇŽ hear hear!ÔÇÖ The Guardian

ÔÇśThis enormous, poignant memoir from the ultimate showbusiness trouper shows that you can never have it all (even if youÔÇÖre Barbra). The writing is great and the likeable formidable personality shines through . . . deeper than the average celebrity memoirÔÇÖ The Times

ÔÇśA glorious doorstopperÔÇŽ the sheer ambition of this intricately woven memoir makes it a fascinating read. The delicate pages bring to mind a Russian novel or, perhaps more appropriately for the many who view Streisand as akin to a deity, a bible. And yet, Streisand writes relatively succinctly, with warmth and wit. Behind the sequins, beneath the wigs and through the glass of the recording studio, thereÔÇÖs just a woman who dreamed of being famous and make it happen, on her terms. ItÔÇÖs an accomplished and entrancing walk through a life well livedÔÇÖ Evening Standard

ÔÇśNo less than a living legend ÔÇŽ StreisandÔÇÖs story is truly inspirational and itÔÇÖs one that youÔÇÖll want to pick up again and againÔÇÖ Glamour

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 recognisable voices in popular music. She has been nominated for a Grammy 46 times, and with Yentl she became the first woman to write, produce, direct, and star in a major motion picture. In My Name Is Barbra, she tells her own story about her life and extraordinary career, from growing up in Brooklyn to her first star-making appearances in New York nightclubs to her breakout performance in Funny Girl (musical and film) to the long string of successes in every medium in the years that followed. 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. No entertainer’s memoir has been more anticipated than Barbra Streisand’s, and this engrossing book will be eagerly welcomed by her millions of fans. ST Bestseller, November 2024.
