Selections from Nora McInerny:

It's Okay to Laugh: (Crying Is Cool Too) by Nora McInerny Purmort

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.

Bad Vibes Only: (And Other Things I Bring to the Table) by Nora McInerny

In essays that revisit her cringey past and anticipate her rapidly approaching early-middle-aged future, McInerny lays bare her own chaos, inviting us to drop the façade of perfection and embrace the truth: that we are all—at best—slightly unhinged. Socrates claimed that the unexamined life is not worth living. Bad Vibes Only is for people who have taken that dictum a bit too far—the overthinkers, the analyzers, the recovering Girl Bosses, and those burned out on their personal brand—reminding us that a life worth living is about more than just "good vibes."

About Nora McInerny

Nora McInerny headshot

How are you? Nora McInerny wants to know the truth. As the creator and host of the podcasts Terrible, Thanks For Asking & It’s Going To Be OK, and the TED speaker known for her viral talk, “We Don’t Move On From Grief, We Move Forward With It,” Nora McInerny specializes in making space for emotional honesty and difficult conversations. From her bestselling memoirs and essay collections to her pieces in The New York Times, TIME magazine and The Washington Post, Nora’s work regularly touches on topics many would rather not discuss—death, loss, illness, mental health, trauma and change—with disarming wit and earnest candor.

Drawing on her personal experiences with grief—Nora lost her husband, second pregnancy and father within a few weeks of each other—and her years of interviewing people who have lived through their own terrible experiences, Nora’s unforgettable writing, podcasts and talks inspire audiences to face and conquer any obstacle—with the strength that comes from knowing that we are not alone.
