Vanity Fair runs a cover story on Meryl Streep with its April issue, featuring a lenghty excerpt from the upcoming book, “Her Again”, (about which you read more this coming April), written by Michael Schulman. At 29, Meryl Streep was grieving for a dead lover, falling for her future husband, and starting work on Kramer vs. Kramer, the movie that would make her a star and sweep the 1980 Oscars. In an adaptation from his upcoming biography of the actress, Her Again: Becoming Meryl Streep, Michael Schulman recounts the struggles—physical, emotional, and intellectual—that launched Streep’s legend.
