RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

A multi-talent, New York-born, Connecticut-bred Sarah Kernochan dropped out of college to pursue a writing career with the Village Voice. By her mid-20s and while still an active journalist, she co-produced and directed the fresh, penetrating Oscar-winning documentary "Marjoe" (1972), about the peripatetic evangelical work of preacher-turned-hippie actor Marjoe Gortner. Instead of using this success as a springboard for further films, Kernochan instead tried her hand as a recording artist for RCA with two solo albums of her own compositions, "House of Pain" (1973) and "Beat Around the Bush" (1974). Neither jump-started singer-songwriter's musical career so she returned to her writing career, penning the 1997 novel "Dry Hustle" and traveled extensively throughout the Middle East.
