My Life Didn't Always Crack Me Up

My Life Didn't Always Crack Me Up


"My Life Didn't Always Crack Me Up" is a candid account of Rick Cormier's life. It reveals the history of depression, loneliness, and heartache behind the humor for which he's known. Initially reluctant to delve into the darker aspects of his past, the author shares the painful journey that shaped him with honesty and vulnerability.

More than just a memoir, it's an inspiring testament to overcoming adversity and finding joy. Mr. Cormier invites you to witness the struggle that led to his becoming the happiest person he knows. This story reminds readers that they, too, can find their own happy ending."
