The Book

THE MENTAL YENTL, STORIES FROM A LIFELONG STUDENT OF CRAZY

Get ready for one, heart-felt and hilarious book, as Sally recalls the crazy events that inspired her most successful and most requested songs. From her very beginnings on Chicago’s Southside to her years as a solo artist, and a founding and touring member of that marvelous musical comedy theatre troupe, THE FOUR BITCHIN’ BABES, Sally chronicles her comical, goof- and flaw-filled life—as a musician, two-time wife, M&M-addicted mother of three, and designated, care-giving Jewish daughter of a difficult Manic Depressive mother—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.

THE MENTAL YENTL, SONGS FROM A LIFELONG STUDENT OF CRAZY

You can think of Sally’s DOUBLE-DISC CD as the gloriously virtuosic (and often, down-right funny) sound track to her new book—or, on its own, as a gorgeously inspirational and melodically epic tour de force. Either way, the 34-song anthology is an invitation to binge (listen with or without chocolate). Fans will recognize several newly-recorded versions of all-time favorites and will treasure the lilting and uplifting beauty of her new songs. A maverick pianist and guitar player and a powerhouse of a vocalist, Sally invites us, with her combination of tender ballads, soaring anthems, and kick-in-your seat musical punchlines, to sit up and listen, take stock in our lives and with bravado, applaud the crazy in our worlds.
