“Thank you for the perfect blend of nostalgia-drenched humor, wit, and heartbreak, Nora.” — Mandy Moore comedy = tragedy + time/rosé Twenty-seven-year-old Nora McInerny Purmort bounced from boyfriend to dopey “boyfriend” until she met Aaron—a 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 Aaron’s 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 Beyoncé. A few months later, Aaron died in Nora’s arms. The obituary they wrote during Aaron’s hospice care revealing his true identity as Spider-Man touched the nation. 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? 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 gift—permission to struggle, permission to laugh, permission to tell the truth and know that everything will be okay. It’s 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 aren’t sure if they’re saying or doing the right thing (you’re 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 they’re supposed to be doing with their one wild and precious life. I don’t actually have the answer, but if you find out, will you text me?

It's Okay to Laugh with Jesus is about a God who loves to laugh because he's proud of his perfect world and loves the people he put in it. He laughs at the folly of humankind that rejects him and rewards faithfulness rather than success. He laughs at a mother as she cuddles her newborn, a baby's giggle, a father tucking a blanket under his son's chin and praying him to sleep. God laughs at the folly of humankind that rejects his love and at the devil knowing his doom is sealed. Those who laugh with Jesus enter a world of smiles and surprises. Starting the adventure costs nothing; living it costs everything. It's easy to become a Christian and difficult to live like one. Once the adventure begins, the awareness shifts from ownership to service, from selfishness to sacrifice, from world-thinking to heaven thinking. Goals change, values deepen, and variables that make no earthly sense develop eternal significance. Where did we ever get the idea that sorrow, sadness and skepticism represent the Christian religion? Not from God. He laughs with a world of people who live and die laughing all the way to heaven. When we laugh with God, the sorrows of life blend with joy; anxiety is calmed with forgiveness; and heartache balances against happiness. In a book of fun and surprises, It's Okay to Laugh with Jesus reveals how, and what, sharpens the faith that brings us closer to our God than we ever thought possible. And when we laugh with him, he knows we're getting it. What a delightful way to spend an hour, a day, a lifetime laughing with Jesus.

This isn't a cancer story. It's a love story. In 2006, Aaron met Nora. She doesn't remember this. In 2010, Aaron and Nora met again and fell in love, fast and hard. Less than a year later, Aaron, aged thirty-two, had two seizures at work which led to an MRI, revealing a brain tumour in his frontal lobe. They immediately decided to get married. After three years of not just being alive but living life to its fullest, Aaron and Nora decided to write Aaron's obituary together. It begins, 'Purmort, Aaron Joseph age 35, died peacefully at home on November 25 after complications from a radioactive spider bite that led to years of crime-fighting and a year-long battle with a nefarious criminal called Cancer, who has plagued our society for too long.' Aaron's obituary soon spread to every corner of the Internet, from DailyMailOnline and Time.com to TheWashingtonPost.com and HuffingtonPost.com. Their story struck a chord. In It's Okay To Laugh (Crying is Cool Too), Nora takes readers on her journey with Aaron. What she discovers is that even the darkest of times reveal the very best in us and the very best in others. Their joys are happier. Their sadness is more poignant. Life is more intense in every way. Aaron taught Nora that there is beauty and humour to be found in even the darkest moments.

It’s better to laugh than to cry. Many years ago, when I was a college student, I took a job peddling mail during the Christmas holidays. One day, as I was passing out the mail, one of the recipients invited me to step into his house for a second or two in order to warm up. “You’ll do a much better job,” he said, “if you rest and warm up for a few minutes.” However, as soon as I entered, his wife approached with three tall glasses of port wine. Not wanting to refuse their kindness, I accepted the offer and drank the wine. How I managed to distribute the rest of the mail to all the other homes along my route is due—I am convinced—to the grace of the almighty God. One of the stories, “The Mail Must Go Through,” will tell you what happened after I drank that tall glass of delicious port wine. As time went on, I began to add more stories, all of them humorous, with the simple purpose of stimulating the reader’s sense of humor. May you enjoy reading the stories as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Three women, beset by trauma, temptation, and regret, find each other in this “rich, haunted, gripping” novel (Ruth Padel, award-winning author of Beethoven Variations). That was the day that Mama made the rules: If they come, run. Be quiet and run. But not together. Never together. If one is found, at least the other survives… During a cold British winter, three women, each suffering her own demons, reach a crisis point. Emily, an immigrant survivor of the Rwandan genocide, is existing but not living. Vera, a newly Christian Londoner, is striving to live a moral life, her happiness constantly undermined by secrets from her past. Lynn, battling with an untimely disease, is consumed by bitterness and resentment of what she hasn’t achieved and what has been snatched from her. Their lives have been torn open by betrayal: by other people, by themselves, by life itself. But as their paths interweave, they begin to unravel their beleaguered pasts, and inadvertently change each other’s futures. Longlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction

THUSDAY'S CHILD is a deeply personal and often painful account of growing up gay in a small town in rural Maryland in the middle of the 20th Century, and the influence of this past on the author's later life. After two life-altering events, he realizes at fourty-four that he's confused about the nature of love and enters psychotherapy where his life story is told in actual sessions between him and his therapist. This story includes many of the issues gay men of this period were forced to face: the realization that he could never have what he calls "a normal life;" the trauma of coming out to friends, familly and business associates; the stigma of a disgraceful discharge from the US Army even after successful completion of two highly skilled and classified specialties; the anguish over the break-up of an early affair of the most abandoned type; and the resultant reluctance and struggle to ever risk intimacy again.
