ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you like to laugh and cry at practically the same time, here is a book for you.

Do you feel like you are the only one left on the planet with a face filled with wrinkles and not getting Botoxed?

Is the idea of your kids bossing you around getting on your nerves, especially when your doctor confides in them?

Do you think all your kids are geniuses?

Would you like to learn how to appreciate your spouse before it’s too late?

Pages," by Lila Greene, is a poignant story of an extraordinary woman’s survival - A love story written in poetry by an avant-garde 77-year-old mother of 5, grandmother of 9, who cannot remember her Mother’s face. Raised by her grandmother in Coney Island during the “Great Depression.” Married a boy singer who wound up on Sammy Davis Jr.'s management team and celebrated more than 50 years together. Co-founded the legendary Renta Yenta in 1973. Survived a downfall of income like the bailout some are experiencing now. Survived the death of her beloved husband Mel, and was inspired by her beloved children and the ones they love and married, to write the stories...

This wonderfully charming, honest, and tender book from the heart, will inspire you to love your life and perhaps write about it.

"Lila Greene spins words into wisdom without strain or pretense. Music from line to line; some of it major, some of it minor, all of it melodic." - Junior Burke, Chair, Writing & Poetics, Naropa University, Boulder, Colorado.

"Pages A Memoir is an absolutely heart-opening book of poetry. To read the poems is to deepen understanding of the mysteries of the feminine and laugh over life's very ordinary vicissitudes set on a stage of profundity, love and often side-splitting humor. I wept with newly realizing the vulnerabilities of the human heart in the grand sweep of a woman's life. It is a book I put down and then I go right on thinking about it." - Judith Mohling, MA, LPC, Boulder, Colorado.

"Ms. Greene read excerpts from the book sprinkled with fascinating background stories of a different time and culture. Her presentation was thoughtful and witty, and at times she had the audience laughing out loud and at times near tears."
–Jeff Oliver, Community Relations Manager, Barnes and Noble

"A triumph of life! Profoundly charged with wit, grief, joy and love. A gift." - R.S. Greene, Middle Child
