Slate reviews My Name Is Barbra by Barbra Streisand (Viking): “ As a casual reader, you need these juicy bits, because there is a lot of more-technical material here for the true film and musical theater nerds. But as the 10th hour slid into the 11th, then the 12th, my primary feeling wasn’t boredom. It was fandom. Long live Barbra Streisand. May she write 1,000 pages more .”
