These hilarious and heartwarming tales come from a free-spirited musician who spent twenty-five years touring with the highly acclaimed musical comedy troupe, The Four B**chin’ Babes. This “student of crazy” celebrates her own personal goofs and flaws, holding artistic and contemporary Jewish life up to the light with love, humor, and heart. Now Sally has documented the stories behind her best-loved songs, sharing those moments from her life—as a working mother, devoted wife, and designated daughter—and of course, a Mental Yentl. Price includes FREE SHIPPING.

Product Description

In these forty-four hilarious and heartwarming tales, Sally documents the stories behind her best loved songs. Viewing the world through her own whack-a-doodle viewfinder, Sally celebrates her personal goofs and flaws, holding her domestic, artistic, and professional life, up to the light, with love, humor and heart. As a working mother, step-mother, wife, sister, friend, dutiful daughter, and free spirited touring musician, Sally loves to “study the nutty” and “figure-out outrageousness.”

Inside these 380 pages, Sally celebrates the insanity of the ordinary…the angst of the extraordinary…and, in short, honors the medicated Matriarchs, who handed down to her their love of family, big thighs, and wack-a-doodle DNA. You’ll find forty essays, stories, family (secret!) recipes, and thirty-three song lyrics. Each song lyric follows the story that motivated Sally’s songwriting. Stories such as “Greetings From the Land of Lime Jello and Really Bad Sanka”  “What Married Women Want To Hear”  “My Medicated Women”  “J-Date and the Internet Dating Pool”  “Bones as a Currency of Love”  “What’s Up With Jewish Composers and Christmas Hits?” and many more.

Of course, Sally includes a few twisted family recipes like:

“Bubbe Chicken your Grandmother Wishes She Could Make”

“Naomi Garfinkel’s Mandel Bread, So Good You’ll Get Invited to Every Party, They’ll Want You Should Bring It.”

“Naomi Garfinkel’s Sweet Dairy Kugle, So Good You’ll Get Invited to Every Party, They’ll Want You Should Bring It.”
