“Buyer & Cellar” by Jonathan Tolins
Comic fantasy: Intrigued by Barbra Streisand’s 2010 coffee-table book “My Passion for Design,” Mr. Tolins’ narrator and main character Alex, a struggling actor in L.A., takes an imaginary job as private shopkeeper of the faux Main Street shops in the basement of Ms. Streisand’s Malibu home. The main perq of the fanciful job caring for the megacelebrity’s world-class collection of dolls, costumes, toys and furnishings: its only patron is the formidable Ms. Streisand. Seriously funny; but beyond the fantasy one may ponder the price of celebrity and celebrity worship.
