Kirkus Reviews names Now It’s Funny...How I Survived Cancer, Divorce and Other Looming Disasters by Michael Solomon “Critic’s Pick”
“A funny, fabulous book!” – Fran Drescher
TV Star and ovarian cancer survivor
“I’m exceedingly sorry Michael Solomon got cancer. But I’m exceedingly happy he chose to share his tale with us. He manages to squeeze a huge amount of humor from this seemingly depressing topic, weaving in thoughts on marriage, fatherhood, surgery and improbable crushes on medical personnel.”
-- A.J. Jacobs
Bestselling author of The-Know-It-All and The Year of Living Biblically
“Anyone who likes Seinfeld should like Solomon (who has his own wisdom).”
You’ve just found out you have cancer. Your marriage is on the rocks. Your city is under attack. Your business is going down the tubes. And you might have been poisoned in high school.
Welcome to the world of author Michael Solomon, who got hit with a cluster bomb of troubles all at once, and found a way to mine a treasure trove of insights, emotions, survival skills, and improbable hilarity from the vertiginous precipice of a life gone suddenly haywire.
Kirkus (Critic’s Pick) beams: “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. There is no pathos in these pages, and that will move readers all the more. A quietly powerful, assured debut.” (Full review: http://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/michael-solomon/now-its-funny)
