Laughing Through Life
Larry Moran, author
This hilarious book invites you to sit down and share dinner with the Morans, a family of ten children, and after dinner to share in the family's pranks and crises. You will walk the streets of Carmel, Indiana, a quiet, small town and will see its shops and meet its neighborly people. Along the way, you will learn what it was like growing up in a large family in a small town during the 1950's and 1960's. Whimsical-at times knee-slapping-tales guide you through childhood, the teen years, early adulthood, and beyond. You get a peek at family dynamics and the struggles of an insecure boy's first encounters with romance. You also learn what it was like to be a journalist, a government economist, a parent, and a golf fanatic. The stories are warm, touching, and always funny. The people you meet, mostly based on the author's siblings, are friendly and fun-loving. The situations, based on real events and family lore, will keep you laughing.
