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.
“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.

I learned so much from Purmort. About what it means to do what you need to do. How to treat others in their time of need, as while I have been there, clearly not in her same situation, and now looking back, I am not proud of how I might have handled other’s grief before I truly understood it or experienced it myself. Maybe I was one of those friends who turned away for fear of hospitals or how to handle the dark times. There are things that we hear others say that are so inappropriate and just not comforting. She writes about the things people say in these dark times and when you read them, it is laughable, but if you were on the receiving end, not so much.
Chapter 37 is everything.
This is not a book about death. It is a book filled with love and great humor, keen observations, an openness that is refreshing.
To Nora, I say I am sorry for that you no longer have your kind father who loved you in the sweetest of ways. I know it hurts big time, that the love of your life was taken from you, there are no words. I am also sorry for the baby that you lost who never got to meet the incredible parents that he/she would have had.
Nora tackles the hardest of hard things with vulnerability, honesty, and humor. She's an excellent writer. I peeled through the first 100 pages the night it was delivered. I only put it down because I needed to get up for work in the morning.
Even if you're not personally dealing with a death, the way she writes about grief (or parenting or relationships or surviving decisions you made in your early 20s) can be made applicable to handling other tough things. She makes it OK to be human and to feel things and to tell other people what you need.

I don't doubt for a moment that I will read this infinity raw and beautiful and real book while I need it, then I will pass it on to the next person who will need it. Thank you Nora
