Terry McMillan: Humor Is a Form of Hope

From Krista Tippett's OnBeing, a podcast conversation with OnBeing's Lily Percy and Terry McMillan, The New York Times bestselling author of Waiting To Exhale, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and I Almost Forgot About You. Krista says, "Whether they’re wrestling with heartbreak, grief, or loneliness, [Terry's characters] use humor to face whatever life throws at them. But these characters are simply taking the lead from their creator, who sees humor as a way of 'protect[ing] our hearts from just bleeding to death.'”
