Publicity card: "Salami Dreamin' is an artist's book by Michelle Maguire, containing images of her unintentionally funny, easily unimpressed Italian American Great-Aunt Doll, with accompanying text by Aaron Beck."

Michelle Maguire: "Aunt Doll, age 84, has lived in Canton, Ohio, her entire life. She curses, loves cured meats, knows more about the NFL than you do, plays strip mall slot machines with her vegetarian hairdresser of 42 years, isn’t trying to be funny but is, worships the sun from her concrete-slab patio, and frets about nothing except her beloved Italian bread packing on the pounds. Aunt Doll makes the most if it. The gist of her story: enjoy every chicken wing while you holler at the Cleveland Browns on your gigantic analog TV, because we aren’t here forever."
