Barry Manilow is the subject of an unauthorized biography scheduled to be released in November, and it's probably not the kind of publicity the singer hopes to receive. The London Evening Standard writes that Manilow's "avowed heterosexuality is placed in serious doubt" by Barry Manilow: A Biography, written by Patricia Butler.
