IT'S OKAY TO LAUGH (Crying is Cool Too)

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nora McInerny Purmort

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Nora McInerny Purmort tells her personal story of love, loss, and what follows in this touching, humorous, unapologetically honest memoir. Purmort loses her father and husband to cancer and a baby to a miscarriage all in the same year. But the energy and passion with which she reads her story exudes the life and magic squeezed from her trials rather than the raw pain and sorrow. Her sarcastic wit is magnified through a strong, authentic delivery. While listeners are certain to find humor in her narration, they will also likely feel the unsettling vibrations of her daily struggles and gaping voids. This young mother is sure to captivate her listeners. Just remember before hitting play, it's okay to laugh, and crying is cool, too. J.F.
