OCT. 26, 2021
Weissinger celebrates her 75th birthday in Yes, Again by taking the reader on a tour of her big heart and where that heart has taken her. This glorious story of a life lived in love is the perfect read because it's hilarious, honest and full of hope. We are all lovers, or we wish we were and Sallie shows us how: never give up, occasionally give in and don't stop believing. Brava!
—Adriana Trigiani, Bestselling author of Tony's Wife
This captivating memoir of not giving up through profound losses, and leaning into the promise of good things to come, swelled my heart. With a chuckle and grit, Weissinger writes of her risky quest to find a new life and a new partner to love. With imagination and a sense of fun – and at times desperation – she creates a unique system she calls PASTRAMI to pursue this course. Her varied life experiences, including extended time in Peru and the Dominican Republic, her beginnings in New Orleans, and her current split residences in Berkeley and Portland make for intriguing reading. Pick up this book and see how she finds joy and delight!
—Marilee Eaves, Author of Singing Out Loud
I have spent decades writing about how to live well. In her book, Sallie Weissinger writes about something maybe even more important — how to love well. And she does so spectacularly. Hers is the book for everyone who has loved and lost, and wants to love again.

Linearity works for many things; however, in Sallie Weissinger's potent book (and even more potent life) she shows us how tapping into grace can be a tangible way of entering into mystery, meaning and direction. By recounting times of staggering loss, loneliness, self-doubt, perseverance and openness to the ineffable, Sallie demonstrates how the journey of life can be a glorious pathway, for those with a bit of daring!

After reading Sallie's soulful book, I would have to say this gifted writer got the love she wanted the old fashioned way – she earned it!

This memoir gives us the fascinating story of a woman’s quest for a meaningful life. It is by turns charming, hilarious, heart-warming and tragic, and yet, in the end, it delivers hope. I don't ask for more.
