Barbra : the way she is by Christopher P Andersen ( Book )
23 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 1,616 libraries worldwide
She is a legend, a global icon, the ultimate diva. Yet most of what we know about Streisand is the stuff of caricature: the Brooklyn girl made good, the political dilettante, the Oscar-winning actress and bona fide movie mogul, the greatest female singer who ever lived, a skinflint, a philanthropist, a connoisseur and a barbarian. Even to the multitudes around the world who idolize her, Streisand remains aloof, unknowable, tantalizingly beyond reach. Until now. Journalist Andersen taps into important sources to paint a startling portrait of the artist--and the woman. Among the revelations: new behind-the-scenes details about her marriage to James Brolin; about her many failed love affairs; what really went on between Streisand and Bill Clinton in the White House; her relationship with her only child, Jason; the brilliance, the obsessive drive for perfection, and the Callas-sized ego, on the stage and the studio.--From publisher description.

Jagger unauthorized by Christopher P Andersen ( Book )
6 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in 5 languages and held by 850 libraries worldwide
He is, without question, one of the dominant cultural figures of our time. Swaggering, strutting, sometimes sinister, always fascinating, Mick Jagger boasts a career spanning four decades - from the turbulent sixties and sybaritic seventies through the booming eighties to the cautious nineties. His is the story of a generation. With Elvis Presley and John Lennon gone, he is arguably the last of the rock titans. Yet Jagger, jealously guarding the secrets of his life, has always managed to remain the most enigmatic of icons. As Jagger celebrates his fiftieth birthday in 1993, best-selling author Christopher Andersen strips the mask from Jumpin' Jack Flash in a no-holds-barred biography as shocking and uncompromising as Jagger himself. The riveting portrait that emerges is based on years of research and countless interviews with friends, teachers, fellow musicians, family members, neighbors, industry insiders, and lovers. Among the many startling insights and revelations in Jagger Unauthorized:. Jagger's bisexual history - and the full story of his bizarre relationships with David Bowie, Rudolf Nureyev, Andy Warhol, and one of today's biggest male rock superstars;. Never-before-revealed details of his turbulent marriages to Bianca Jagger and Jerry Hall, his affairs with Marianne Faithfull, Carly Simon, and Linda Ronstadt, and his sexual escapades with numberless fans - including Madonna;. The years awash in cocaine, hashish, LSD, and speed - the headline-making drug trials, and how long this harrowing substance abuse really went on;. A rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of Jagger's business dealings, and why he is rightly considered a financial genius;. And of course, all the scandal, drama, and genius that went into making the Rolling Stones the "world's greatest rock and roll band": the backstage maneuverings to oust Stones cofounder Brian Jones and Jones's mysterious early death, Jagger's strangely erotic love-hate affair with Keith Richards that continues today, the bloodbath at Altamont, the countless hits and record-smashing tours, the Steel Wheels triumph, and much more. Jagger Unauthorized is, like its subject, explosive and compelling - the definitive biography of a man whose very name defines an era.
