At nearly 1,000 pages, the long-anticipated memoir from Barbra Streisand covers her more than 60-year career, and she bares plenty. It’s all in there: stories about her childhood and relationship with her mother, landing her first Broadway audition, doing Funny Girl, and even the media attention directed toward her nose. In reflecting on those moments and more, Streisand reveals she has always been exactly who she is: confident, maybe a little brazen, and one of the best performers who has ever lived. —Mahita Gajanan
