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.

Laugh to Love has one of the best collections of rib-ticklers in the modern era and laughter will be echoed in pubs, restaurants, meeting places including the loos! It will be no surprise that many pages will be repeated by entertainers, journalists, politicians and those who wish to spice up their speeches or conversation. What critics are saying: Laugh to Love will provide laughter to many through the ages. But what impress me most are the subtleties in many lines that are lessons for us to learn. What a gem! Its written in such good taste that politicians, CEOs, holy ones, egotists, sexists and hypocrites are humbled. Im a traveling executive and Laugh to Love will always be in my briefcase as my best mate.

For as long as Thomas can remember, she's lived with laughter. Born to comedy royalty—TV and nightclub star Danny Thomas—she grew up among legendary funny men, carved much of her career in comedy and, to this day, surrounds herself with people who love and live to make others laugh. Thomas takes us on a funny and heartwarming adventure, from her Beverly Hills childhood, to her groundbreaking creation of That Girl and Free to Be . . . You and Me, to her marriage to talk-show king Phil Donahue.
