Thank you for the perfect blend of nostalgia-drenched humor, wit, and heartbreak, Nora. Mandy Moore

comedy = tragedy + time/ros

Twenty-seven-year-old Nora McInerny Purmort bounced from boyfriend to dopey boyfriend until she met Aarona charismatic art director and comic-book nerd who once made Nora laugh so hard she pulled a muscle. When Aaron was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, they refused to let it limit their love. They got engaged on Aarons hospital bed and had a baby boy while he was on chemo. In the period that followed, Nora and Aaron packed fifty years of marriage into the three they got, spending their time on what really matters: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, each other, and Beyonc. A few months later, Aaron died in Noras arms. The obituary they wrote during Aarons hospice care revealing his true identity as Spider-Man touched the nation. With Its 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? How can a joyful marriage contain more sickness than health? How do you keep going when life kicks you in the junk? In this deeply felt and deeply funny memoir, Nora gives her readers a true giftpermission to struggle, permission to laugh, permission to tell the truth and know that everything will be okay. Its Okay to Laugh is a love letter to life, in all its messy glory; it reads like a conversation with a close friend, and leaves a trail of glitter in its wake.

This book is for people who have been through some shit.

This is for people who arent sure if theyre saying or doing the right thing (youre not, but nobody is). This is for people who had their life turned upside down and just learned to live that way. For people who have laughed at a funeral or cried in a grocery store. This is for everyone who wondered what exactly theyre supposed to be doing with their one wild and precious life. I dont actually have the answer, but if you find out, will you text me?
