About the Author

Born in February 1923, Dr. Alma H. Bond is the author or co-author of more than 20 published books, among them: Jackie O: On the Couch; Lady Macbeth: On the Couch; Marilyn Monroe: On the Couch; Michelle Obama: A Biography; The Autobiography of Maria Callas: A Novel; Margaret Mahler: A Biography of the Psychoanalyst; Camille Claude: A Novel; America’s First Woman Warrior: The Story of Deborah Sampson; and Who Killed Virginia Woolf?: A Psychobiography. Dr. Bond received her Ph.D. in developmental psychology from Columbia University, graduated from the post-doctoral program in psychoanalysis at the Freudian Society, and was a psychoanalyst in private practice for 37 years in New York City. Following an accident-induced coma from which she was not expected to recover, she "retired" to become a full-time writer. Dr. Bond is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, the Dramatists Guild, and the Authors Guild, as well as a fellow and faculty member of the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, the International Psychoanalytic Association, and the American Psychological Association. She was one of the first non-medical analysts to be elected to the International Psychoanalytic Association. Dr. Bond grew up in Philadelphia, where she obtained her undergraduate degree in psychology from Temple University, and following voluntary military service, moved to New York, where she earned a graduate degree in psychology from Columbia University. A longtime resident of New York City, she lived for nearly a dozen years in south Florida, and now resides in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Absolutely gripping If you're a fan, or just curious about Streisand, this is a book you won't want to miss out on. I couldn't put it down. I could picture Babs on the couch, pouring her heart out, sharing her personal and celebrity life. It's not a non fiction book, but it was created so perfectly with past real interviews, and events that were used to create these couch "sessions". It was a remarkable book and I really enjoyed it. I look forward to reading more of Dr. Bond's work, especially her other couch sessions. The book took the reader on the journey of Streisand's life, including triumphs and tribulations throughout her life. Totally compelling, and a book you read from cover to cover, and maybe even reread.
