From the Publisher"Paul Marcus has hit the nail on the head - or should I say the nerve of the heart, a heart that is ticklish. This is a beautiful book showing the tragicomic richness of humour as part of life, as aid to living, as opener of soul dimensions, and affirming of everyday life touched by transcendence. He takes us on a tour of humour in psychoanalysis, culture, life and death in many modes, adding to our appreciation of who we are and what life is. I laughed and cried and learned through the ways that truth and love and fun can tickle, touch and enlighten."
"Beautifully blending insights from psychology and sociology, Marcus has convinced me that embracing a 'tragicomic vision', as he calls it, is an essential quality of mind if we are to prevail amidst the many difficulties of everyday life. Filled with poignant and humorous examples, this book was a pleasure to read and learn from."
