ABOUT THE BOOK

The kind of talent possessed by American actress Meryl Streep comes along once or twice in a century. Taking her place among legendary greats like Lawrence Olivier and Marlon Brando, Streep reminds audiences of the rare kind of magic a true actor possesses.

Streep also possesses a personal grace unique to someone so famous. She's known the world over for her film roles, but she hasn't let her star status go to her head. In a media-soaked world full of talentless reality stars, Streep's presence is a testament to the saying that substance always triumphs over style.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Many consider Meryl Streep to be the greatest actress of her generation. Her ability to master accents and dialects as well as transition in chameleon-like fashion from role to role has earned her wide acclaim in the eyes of the public and entertainment industry. Since making her professional debut in a 1971 play called The Playboy of Seville, Streep has become one of the most accomplished and fascinating cultural figures of the 21st century.

Streep proved her extraordinary flexibility and talent for physical transformation through her roles in Kramer versus Kramer, Sophie's Choice, Out of Africa, The French Lieutenant's Woman, Silkwood, and the Devil Wears Prada, among many more. Her range of work in comedy, romance, and drama, both on stage and screen, prevented Streep from being typecast early in her career. She can command an audience in person just as well as she does on celluloid.

Streep, perhaps the most nominated actress in history, has been nominated for 17 Oscars and 26 Golden Globes. She has earned two ‘Best Actress' Oscars (for her roles in Kramer vs. Kramer and Sophie's Choice), two Emmys, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and eight Golden Globes. She has received five Grammy nominations, a Tony nomination, and a 2004 AFI Life Achievement Award.

    Don't bother...

    Could not believe I spent money on this. I could have found out more by "googling" Meryl Streep. This was a waste of time and money that I could have used finding a real book to use for my paper. I wish the author or even Barnes and Noble would have put a better desription on the site, since it would have helped in my decision to purchase.
