You've probably read Saralee Perel's essays on our website, where she shares the wisdom as well as the humor she has learned from living with a spinal cord injury. We're excited that she's just launched her new book: Cracked Nuts & Sentimental Journeys: Stories From a Life Out of Balance.
I've known Saralee for almost five years now. We have emailed a lot and talked on the phone from time to time, but we have never met in person. Yet, through the essays she's shared here, I feel like I know her and oddly enough, when I read her writings, I feel like she knows me.
Her stories make me laugh and cry and best of all think. I think about what kind of person I am, what kind of person I want to be, and exactly what path I need to follow. She writes about courage and love and empathy and family with insight that cuts right down to the soul. Along the way we meet her mom, dad, dog, and husband/sidekick, among others in the cast of characters that is her life story.
Saralee is a storyteller in the tradition of Erma Bombeck and Dave Barry (Google them, kids). Reading her stories will make you want to call your parents, kiss your spouse, and hug your pets.
