Read from February 01 to 04, 2011

I really enjoyed this book, but that's probably because I have a somewhat large obsession with Ms Streep.

The book was published in 1984 and so only covers her early life and the early part of her career. Still, it was interesting reading. Meryl is so private that there are only three biographies and they're all from years and years ago. Still, being a hardcore fan, I want to read anything and everything I can.

The writing isn't great and you can tell that the author has had to scrabble around for information - I read/heard something about Meryl hating the people that chose to write biographies about her and so there's no way she would have given them ANY information intentionally - but it still made for interesting reading. The excerpts from her various interviews and the facts/photographs just reminded me why I find her so inspiring and it made me fall in love with her all over again!
