Hello, Gorgeous: becoming Barbra Streisand

Mann, William J

In 1960, she was a 17-year-old Brooklyn kid with plenty of talent but no connections and certainly no money - her mother brought her soup to make sure she didn't go hungry as she took acting classes and scraped a living. Just four years later, Barbra Streisand was the top-selling female recording artist in America and the star of one of Broadway's biggest hits.

Mann chronicles her astonishing ascent
