LOS ANGELES, Apr 30 (Reuters) Christopher Anderson knows all the tricks of the celebrity biography trade having written on Jack and Jackie, Charles and Diana, Bill and Hillary, Hepburn and Tracy and even George and Laura.

He's done one now on Barbra Streisand, called ''Barbra,'' and it seems to fulfil all the prerequisites of a successful celeb bio, including making the best-seller list and angering the subject.

It has juicy tales seemingly told out of school -- or at least out of old newspaper clips -- and it has that nugget of information that captures the headlines, like the biography of J Edgar Hoover that declared that the late FBI director liked to dress up in women's clothing.

In Anderson's case, he contends that among the many, many famous people Streisand supposedly had affairs with both the husband and boyfriend of Britain's Princess Diana -- Prince Charles and Dodi al Fayed.

The singer, who just turned 64 and is married to actor James Brolin, is too much of a lady to comment on her love life or other personal details but in recent weeks she has been using her Web site to attack Anderson's book.
