New biography of Streep arriving in spring 2016

Broadway World is reporting that a new biography of Meryl Streep will be released on April 26, 2016.  Entitled Her Again: Becoming Meryl Streep, it is written by Michael Schulman, a contributor to  both the New Yorker and New York Times.  The book will feature Streep in her very early years as she ascends to stardom in the New York theater circle.  It appears that particular focus will be placed on Meryl's development of her craft and family against the backdrop of "feminism, marriage, love and sacrifice."

Of course I'll be purchasing a copy and reading this as soon humanly possible.  Most, if not all books I've read on Meryl have contained multiple inaccuracies.  I'm hopeful that Mr. Schulman has indeed done his research.  I'm always interested to get new insight into Meryl's work and motivations near the beginning of her career.  Can't wait!


  1. I always find it really off-putting when we the reader know more than the author. Hopefully this will be a valuable piece of reading!

    I would still love Meryl at some point to write her memoirs. Her ability to communicate and tell stories is one of her many gifts - I could listen to her interviews for hours...

    1. I have a feeling she may never, but would love to learn more insights from her about events on film sets from her career, her choices of roles.

  2. Do we really need another biography?
    Her writing it would be the best solution - but will that ever happen?

  3. Do we need another biography?? Yes... How many are out there? Like one critical analysis of her work up to Heartburn and the other which looks at only 10 crucial roles..2?Yes...we really need another one!- Jamie
