For author Charlene Pillow Little, the mirror on the wall refl ected a sobering message. As the signs of aging were obviously growing at a much higher rate than her 401(k) she must act quickly, but not for a face lift. It was time for Sarah to set the record straight and go all the way back to the fifties, to the time when she too was wrinkle-free, young and restless. These memoirs are her own unmistakable voice talking about the good, the bad, and the not so pretty of her journey through life. The Song of Sarah presents a touching personal story from 1937 to 2010, beginning with her birth in the thirties when the family physician arrives an hour late. Her feisty grandmother assumes the role of emergency MD. Growing up petite and scrawny in the fifties—and always on the lookout for ways to change her name to the one she feels is truly her—she emerges from each hurdle stronger in character, body, and mind. Though her childhood years were lived in an environment considered poverty-stricken, the hardships and circumstances served to define more clearly and purposefully certain ambitions and values. Told with candor and humor, her story is more about the human spirit that wills itself, not only to survive, but triumph over the long haul—a spirit that doesn’t accept the notion that life is over after the fiftieth wedding anniversary.

Ladies who Lunge: Essays on Difficult Women dances through history with the unconventional woman. Witty and refreshing, the tone, texture and feeling of the words on the page are as unconventional as the plucky women who punctuate the prose. It is a tough, determined, moving, frank and funny review of difficult women: how they got there, how we can understand their actions, and how we can learn from them.

"There is so much going on in this book. One minute I'm laughing; the next minute I'm crying and then I'm steaming mad at some fucktard I don't even know. When's the follow-up coming out?!" - T. Caraway, Age 22, Chicago, IL @ "Kilgore really makes me want to think twice about quitting my job at the record store and heading to LA like I have always dreamed, yet she makes it seem like so much fun! And I can't date her cuz she'll write about all the stupid things I do." - J. Garner, Age 25, Tokepa, KS @ "Just tell me now, is there anything in your book that would make me have to apologize to anyone or pick and move in the middle of the night?" - P. Buenger, Pasadena, Texas (Robin's Mother) @ "You used cuss words in your book?! Well, that's not very cultured...There went your shot on Oprah!" - M. Nowak, Pasadena, TX (Robin's Grandmother) @ Emotional. Raw. Thought provoking. Buy this book and put it by the toilet or in your overnight bag. It's a guilty pleasure.
