520 8  Barbra Streisand has been called the "most successful ... 
       talented performer of her generation" by Vanity Fair, and 
       her voice, said pianist Glenn Gould, is "one of the 
       natural wonders of the age." Streisand scaled the heights 
       of entertainment-from a popular vocalist to a first-rank 
       Broadway star in Funny Girl to an Oscar-winning actress to
       a producer and director. But she has also become a 
       cultural icon who has transcended show business. To 
       achieve her success, Brooklyn-born Streisand had to 
       overcome tremendous odds, not the least of which was her 
       Jewishness. Dismissed, insulted, even reviled when she 
       embarked on a show business career for acting too Jewish 
       and looking too Jewish, she brilliantly converted her 
       Jewishness into a metaphor for outsiderness that would 
       eventually make her the avenger for anyone who felt 
       marginalized and powerless. Neal Gabler examines 
       Streisand's life and career through this prism of 
       otherness-a Jew in a gentile world, a self-proclaimed 
       homely girl in a world of glamour, a kooky girl in a world
       of convention-and shows how central it was to Streisand's 
       triumph as one of the voices of her age.
