But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor
It's not easy to see the bright side of cancer, but Michael Solomon makes it seem simple. His story Now It's Funny...is full of humor, insight and for me, just plain good reading. Once I started this book I couldn't put it down and found myself laughing out loud - literally! - on numerous occasions.

Here's the set-up:
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.
One Reviewer Notes:
One man’s funny, bittersweet memoir of physical and marital collapse and rebirth.... Solomon is both a remarkably smart guide and a very entertaining one... Solomon skillfully intertwines the medical with the emotional, affectingly describing the toll his illness takes on his already fragile family; the chapter “Telling Luke” is a small masterpiece in depicting a father-son bond under unthinkable pressure. Through the whole account, Solomon is both a remarkably smart guide and a very entertaining one. There is no pathos in these pages, and that will move readers all the more. A quietly powerful, assured debut.
