New book from Barbra Streisand

“A Passion for Design” is the title to a book that is in the works by Barbra Streisand.

The AP notes that the book will be: “an illustrated book scheduled for fall 2010 that includes photos of the Malibu, Calif., oceanfront compound she worked on for more than five years, and of other residences, back to her early years in New York.”

While the singer admits to being at work on a memoir, she is unsure if she will finish and publish it. The article notes that she isn’t even sure if she wants to revisit her own life enough to write about it.

The article also mentions: “She sees the book as answering questions she has often asked herself: Why is she so fascinated by furniture, gardens and how homes are constructed? Why was she buying antique clothing as a teenager? Why, in the basement of her new house, did she reproduce a city street? Why did she even write a script about her home?”

The book will be published by Viking, and anyone wanting to know more can visit the AP article.
