Sophie and Me

Some of These Days


She was the one, the only American Red Hot Mama. Her career spanned six decades, taking her from the cramped apartment above her parents’ restaurant in Hartford, Connecticut, to the world’s greatest music halls. And she became, and remains, one of the biggest influences on women entertainers and comedians in American history.

Sophie and Me is the story of Sophie Tucker—the colorful, spicy, bold entertainer who broke boundaries in the industry and whose popularity during her life, and celebrity even beyond it has not waned. Told through the eyes of her great-grand niece, to whom Sophie took under her wing and was both mentor and surrogate grandmother, Sophie and Me takes the reader on an intimate journey through Sophie’s extraordinary life. Sophie Tucker was an original. Zaftig, full-bodied in looks and voice, she was strong and independent before it became acceptable for women.

Sophie and Me is the story of the American dream and of one woman who refused to compromise her looks or heritage to reach success. A woman who lived an untraditional life in traditional times. A woman who achieved vast fame and fortune, and yet never really was the “Yiddishe Momme” she sang about.
