Barbra Streisand s story may be the most triumphant case of revenge in show business history . . . Mann vividly evokes the atmosphere of Streisand s New York. "New York Times"
In 1960, Barbra Streisand was just a seventeen-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, she was the top-selling female recording artist in America and the star of one of Broadway s biggest hits. In "Hello, Gorgeous," the acclaimed Hollywood biographer William Mann chronicles that dizzying ascent, telling the riveting behind-the-scenes story of how Streisand and her team transformed her from an unknown dreamer into one of the world s most beloved superstars.
Trying to figure out the Barbra Streisand mystique is no easy task, but author William Mann expertly captures the launch of her remarkable career in the early 1960s when a unique star was born . . . Mann's meticulous research and insightful analysis go deeper than any previous biography: shedding light on the formative years that shaped Streisand's persona, debunking some myths . . . and providing a cultural snapshot of the wild and free-spirited era in which Streisand blossomed. "USA Today"
In his masterful book, Mann captures one of the most fully realized pictures of the multi-hyphenate superstar to date . . . Many books have been written about Streisand but few, if any, put readers as close to the subject as Mann does." "Miami Herald"
William J. Mann is the author of "Kate: The Woman Who Was Hepburn," which was named a "New York Times" Notable Book, and "How to Be a Movie Star: Elizabeth Taylor in Hollywood," as well as several other works of fiction and nonfiction. He lives in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and New York City.
