(Pam Green writes on Her Again by Michael Schulman)
Fascinating in-depth look at Meryl Streep's early life, especially her training at Yale as a post-graduate. In a culture where most actors are so eager to break into the business they don't bother to get a college degree, and make or break their careers in their teens or early twenties, she started landing leading roles when she was 26.
The book winds up with her marriage to Don Gummer, so no insights on her later career. Here's hoping there will be a follow-up.
I should add that Meryl Streep didn't co-operate with the writer at all, but the acknowledgments go on for pages.
