When I saw this out of the corner of my eye, I first thought it was a sci-fi novel of some sort. Boy, was I wrong. I nabbed this from the dump for a friend. I can’t wait to get it out of my house, not a fan.

    btw, A Star Is Born is one of my least favorite Streisand musicals. To me, it is over-acted to the point of being unrealistic and downright corny, and I never once believe Barbra as a rock singer. At the end, when Babs rocks out, it is embarrassing bad. I prefer Funny Girl and On A Clear Day.

    Oh Michael. Your going to shake me! I’ve never seen “A Star Is Born:.

    I do love how you met her though! I know what it’s like to want to meet an idol. I met one of mine. When I met Shirley Bassey I was almost beside myself but I had plenty of control and had the best time with her. When she rubbed my face and told me “green is your color darling”, I almost wet myself. I’ve seen Dame Shirley Bassey 3 times in LA. Don’t get me started here!

    I collect Barbra books, and I love the cover of this one. I have a copy, although with another, less exciting cover. Hoping to add this one to my collection one day!
