Voice Lessons is the story of Phoebe Hirsch, an aimless young woman who comes of age in the turbulent nineteen sixties, pursues art, music, and communal life in the seventies, and finally finds her voice as a writer as the eighties begin.

Along the way, she falls in and out of love, discovers the mystical world of the Sufis, learns to be a good mother, and finds the courage to stand up for herself, her child, and her work. Most importantly, she learns how to be herself.

About the Author:

Unsure which of the arts to pursue, Marcy tried an acting career: as the dead body in Arsenic and Old Lace. Despite the talent evident in this role, she did not reenter the theatrical world until 1981, when she co-wrote and toured with Morning Glory Theatre's production of Three Golden Hairs, a musical fairy tale for elementary school children. Songwriting proved more successful. She won several national awards for songwriting, and was a finalist in the Spring Lyric contest on A Prairie Home Companion. Her poem was read on the air. Combining theater and music, she wrote her first libretto in 1973 for an incipient puppet troupe named Das Puppenspiel, who went on to win international awards. In the mid-seventies, she performed as a singer-songwriter, opening for Vassar Clements, Pete Seeger, Aztec Two-Step, and others. Marcy has written the libretti for three children's operas (Jack and the Beanstalk, Brementown Musicians, and Alice) and three children's musicals (The Snow Queen, Tailor of Gloucester, and It's a Wonderful Life), as well as the lyrics and often the melody for over 100 songs, including lyrics for Viva! Musica, a Japanese musical circus. All her work has been performed, mostly by the Cinnabar Theater in Petaluma or the Occidental Community Choir in Sonoma County. Some of her musicals have also been performed by school and community groups around the world, and several of her songs were recorded commercially.

Review:

"I can promise you, you will love it! Funny, warm, and wise." -Joan R. "Heartfelt and funny story of navigating the creative world, with a main character who is vulnerable and real. This book is a gem." -Melanie A. "Very funny, raw, transporting. Revisiting the 60s, 70s, and 80s with Phoebe brings back the three decades as we first experienced them, hitting us squarely, and without the varnish of later perspectives." - Frieda R. "...a wonderfully written tale... I felt a bond with this very real, very relate-able person. I enjoyed this novel tremendously." -Mary R.
