What do you get when you mix a childhood forged in the boozy-hazed post-war partying of the 50s—replete with Lenny Bruce recitations at age eight—with an "adulthood" as a college-hopping educational film actress, boy-guru disciple, L.A. song-writer, night club comedienne and prison school teaching artist? You get a feeling-centric, language-obsessed Cleveland refugee who has an epiphany and decides to save the world with wild stories, mostly true.
