Book Description

Now It's Funny by Michael Solomon

The Indie Book of the Day for 12th of July 2012!

Genre: Memoir, Humor

Now It’s Funny: How I Survived Cancer, Divorce, and Other Looming Disasters is a modern hybrid, on one hand a page-turning medical thriller, and on the other a hilarious romp through the mind of a man bedazzled by fatherhood and midlife. What makes it so different from other “illness” memoirs is that it reads like a movie: in its frenetic pace, its intensity, and its improbable and relentless humor. In the same way that A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius was grounded in a cancer story, Now It’s Funny… transcends its medical milieu and introduces a fresh new voice into the realm of non-fiction to tell a heartfelt story about a father’s search for meaning and his undying devotion to his sons.
