Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Terrible, thanks for asking. That's how it feels to be a widowed mother at age thirty-one. But before Nora McInerny started the Hot Young Widows Club, she bounced from boyfriend to dopey "boyfriend" until she met Aaron--a funny and charismatic art director and comic-book nerd. When Aaron was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, they refused to let it limit their love. They got engaged on Aaron's hospital bed, had a baby boy while he was on chemo, and packed a lifetime of marriage into three short years. All too soon, Aaron died in Nora's arms. The obituary they wrote while in hospice touched the nation (and revealed his true Spider-Man identity). With It's Okay to Laugh, Nora puts a young, fresh twist on the subjects of mortality and resilience. What does it actually mean to live your "one wild and precious life" to the fullest?

--Jennifer Weiner, New York Times Bestselling author of Who Do You Love --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

“This story will compel you to both laugh and cry, just as the title promises. May we all bring Nora’s honesty, passion and hope to our lives.” (Lena Dunham)

“An emotional rollercoaster of the highest order...It’s Okay to Laugh is that rare gem of a read, equal parts heartwarming and hysterical, that’ll make you laugh out loud, only to leave you tearing up a few pages later. I can’t recommend it highly enough.” (Lincoln Thompson, BuzzFeed)

“Deeply moving yet refreshingly funny” (PopSugar)

“This gorgeous and insightful memoir holds up the lens to mortality and leaves us with a reminder to make every moment count and value what is truly precious: time-and laughter.” (Refinery29)

It’s Okay to Laugh is...an unapologetic tale of heartbreak and loss that is devoid of platitudes. I found myself laughing through my tears, but that’s the real experience of profound morning, and she nails it.” (Rebecca Soffer, writer, Modern Loss co-founder)

“Nora is Anne Lamott for the emoji generation...one of the best books you’ll read this year.” (MSP Magazine)

“A natural storyteller, Nora’s words will make you laugh and cry all in the same paragraph. She transforms what would be a heart-breaking memoir into a life-affirming anthem.” (David Gallaher, author of The Only Living Boy Series)

“It is funny, and it is sad, and it is real, and if you’ve ever been through anything in your life…you are going to love this book.” (Jennifer Weiner, New York Times Bestselling author of Who Do You Love) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
