William Mann (c) Michael Childers


William J Mann‘s new biography portraits a young Barbra Streisand in the 1960s, when she was a seventeen-year-old Brooklyn kid with plenty of talent but no good looks, no connections and certainly no money. We never really were Barbra-queens, but curious about how – within four years – she could become the top-selling female recording artist in America and the star of one of Broadway’s biggest hits.

We spoke with Will about his new book, his favourite places and guys in Europe and North America. The whole interview will be printed in the november issue of MÄNNER and for all those, who want to have a look behind-the-scenes of how Streisand and her team transformed her from an unknown dreamer into a worldwide superstar: here you can.
