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

Don't you love laughing so hard you cry? You are holding your stomach and trying not to wet yourself. It's cleansing, stress relieving and exhausting in the best way. Laughing and smiling when times are good is easy. You are enjoying a beautiful day, that item you have been drooling over just went on sale for the lowest price in history, you are gazing at the sweet face of a newborn baby. Yep, life is good. Oh wait, that's right, life isn't always good. Now what? You can't laugh or smile. It's wrong! You feel guilty! If you're feeling good you're not focused on what is happening. This is my story and why it's okay to laugh.

Entertainment Weekly, "Fall's 20 Must-Reads" (2018) Essence, "Fall 2018 Guide to All Things Funny" Bustle, "18 New Nonfiction Books to Know in October 2018" "Robinson offers deft cultural criticism and hilarious personal anecdotes that will make readers laugh, cringe, and cry. Everything may indeed be trash but writing like this reminds us that we're gonna make it through all the terrible things with honesty, laughter, and faith."--Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author New York Times bestselling author and star of 2 Dope Queens Phoebe Robinson is back with a new, hilarious, and timely essay collection on gender, race, dating, and the dumpster fire that is our world. Written in her trademark unfiltered and witty style, Robinson's latest collection is a call to arms. Outfitted with on-point pop culture references, these essays tackle a wide range of topics: giving feminism a tough-love talk on intersectionality, telling society's beauty standards to kick rocks, and calling foul on our culture's obsession with work. Robinson also gets personal, exploring money problems she's hidden from her parents, how dating is mainly a warmed-over bowl of hot mess, and, definitely most important, meeting Bono not once, but twice. She's struggled with being a woman with a political mind and a woman with an ever-changing jeans size. She knows about trash because she sees it every day--and because she's seen roughly one hundred thousand hours of reality TV and zero hours of Schindler's List. With the intimate voice of a new best friend, Everything's Trash, But It's Okay is a candid perspective for a generation that has had the rug pulled out from under it too many times to count.

When you think of your future, what comes to mind? Do words like promise, growth, and joy express it well? Or do you think wrinkles, gray hair, and age spots? Valerie Bell believes that the second half of your life holds opportunities the first could never touch. She offers women of all ages a refreshing, unabashedly feminine look at how to grow wise, stronger, and more vibrant through the years. She Can Laugh at the Days to Come shows how you can start today building a tomorrow of incredible richness as you discover your true self - your soul. A well-tended soul, writes Bell, weeds out what is malignant and false and builds in what is beautiful, worthy, and redemptive. Soul-centered women have a joyful, confident attitude about the future, seeing potential where others see loss, laughing when others can only cry. With a refreshing combination of candor, empathy, and earthiness, Bell uses her own experiences to help you live a deeper, more genuinely connected life; pursue dreams that reflect your spiritual values and add quality to life; shape the world around you with an authentic, life-changing spirituality; discover the power of thankfulness to uproot envy and loss; build confidence, joy, and charisma into the potential-packed years ahead; transcend the fears and losses of "aging" as you discover the benefits of "younging" ... and much more.

This collection of research has attempted to capture the essence and promise embodied in the concept of "identity" and built a bridge to the realm of second language studies. However, the reader will notice that we did not build just one link. This volume brings to light the diversity of research in identity and second language studies that are grounded the notions of community, instructors and students, language immersion and study abroad, pop culture and music, religion, code switching, and media. The chapters reflect the efforts of contributors from Canada, Japan, Norway, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States who performed their research in the countries just mentioned and in other regions around the world. Because of this, this volume truly offers an international perspective.
