Four years later she’d taken over Broadway as the star of Funny Girl and had three platinum albums. William Mann chronicles Barbra Streisand’s rise to fame, brilliantly showcasing the electrifying story of how she broke all the showbiz rules to transform herself into the greatest superstar of her era.

Behind the Screen: How Gays and Lesbians Shaped Hollywood, 1910-1969 and How to Be a Movie Star: Elizabeth Taylor in Hollywood. Mann divides his time between Provincetown, Massachusetts and Palm Springs, California
