FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE —

Hilarious and heartbreaking essays about love, life, families, and food, accompanied by recipes and written by a curated group of kick ass women. To be released just in time for Mother’s Day. Edited by Claire LaZebnik (author of Things I Should Have Known and Overcoming Autism) and Ann Brown (Dr. Strangemom). Contributors include Merrill Markoe (It’s My F-ing Birthday), Jeb Sharp (PRI’s The World), Carolyn Omine (The Simpsons) and Liza Donnelly (The New Yorker).

Recipes include:, Savory Bitch Ramen, Saffron Hot Chocolate and Roasted Opossum and Chicken Soup A La Bachelor.  Accompanying stories make them come alive– A playwright shares  “Warm Cinnamon Rolls for the Broken-Hearted”  that consoled her the night her boyfriend brought home another woman; a wife describes an elaborate meal bartered for forgiveness after she adopts a dog without her husband’s permission.

Writers, illustrators, performers and poets share their stories, memories, struggles, embarrassing moments–and favorite recipes. “SisterWriterEaters is the literary equivalent of a heart-to-heart over a warm slice of coffee cake,” says LaZebnik.   Adds Brown, “We’re human, and we’re hungry.”  SisterWriterEaters is published by Griffith Moon.

In his touching and often hilarious theatrical memoir, Ron Fassler tells the real-life stories of how he saw over 200 Broadway plays and musicals between the ages of 12-16 for as little as $2 a ticket, self-funded by the profits from his Long Island paper route. In the days when 50-60 shows came to Broadway every season, Fassler sat in the last row of the balcony, then headed home to write reviews which he reveals for the first time so many decades later. Ron’s eyewitness account to some of the greatest shows and stars of the 1960s and 70s (with visits backstage to many of them), is furthered by conversing over the past four years with legendary actors, writers, producers, directors, and composers who were part of this remarkable time. Threading his own personal stories with theirs, the book features memories and insights from Jane Alexander, Sheldon Harnick, James Earl Jones, Stacy Keach, Nathan Lane, Hal Linden, John Lithgow, Bette Midler, Austin Pendleton, Harold Prince, Doris Roberts, Stephen Sondheim, and Mike Nichols among many others.
