 Barbra Streisand's long-awaited memoir will be released this year

< p>

Barbra Streisand's long-awaited memoir that she's been talking about for years is coming out this fall. November 7.

The memoirs of the American singer, as befits a superstar with the most grandiose ambitions, total 1040 pages.

“The book, like Barbra herself, is frank, funny, self-confident and charming,” the publisher says. She talks about her early attempts to become an actress and how she ended up singing to earn a living; about recording some of his famous albums; about the years of effort spent on making the film “Yentl”; about directing the film "Prince of the Tides"; about his friendship with a variety of people – from Marlon Brando to Madeleine Albright; about their political activities; and that she found satisfaction in her marriage to James Brolin.”

“My name is Barbra.” is also the title of Streisand's 1965 album and TV show.

Publishers have been searching for Streisand's memoir for decades: in 2021, the singer told Jimmy Fallon that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis asked her to write the memoir in the early 1980s when the former first lady was an editor at Doubleday. During an interview with The Associated Press in 2009, Streisand mentioned that she wrote chapters about her life by hand.

The memoir was first announced in 2015 and was scheduled two years later, although at the time it no title.

The memoir's financial terms have not been disclosed. Streisand is represented by Robert Barnett, a Washington attorney whose clients also included Barack Obama and Elton John.
