From the screenwriter who brought us When Harry Met Sally comes a hilarious, candid look at issues that concern women. With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron discusses everything - from how much she hates her purse to how much time she spends attempting to stop the clock: the hair dye, the treadmill, the lotions and creams that promise to slow the aging process but never do. Oh, and she can't stand the way her neck looks. But her dermatologist tells her there's no quick fix for that. Ephron chronicles her life as an obsessed cook, passionate city dweller, and hapless parent in an audiobook that is utterly courageous, wickedly funny, and unexpectedly moving in its truth telling.… (més)

Nora Ephron had such a marvelous sense of humor! If you're starting to move into the category of "older woman," as I am, you'll appreciate her take on how we view ourselves physically and emotionally as she explores topics as sensitive as parenting and as offbeat as purses. Reminded me of Erma Bombeck's writing. ( )

Nora Ephron's book is composed of 15 short pieces about her life. This Ephron is the one that wrote the screenplay for "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless in Seattle", so even if the publisher hadn't described it as "hilarious" and "wickedly funny" I would have expected it to be. It isn't though and what a disappointment! Maybe it's outdated, it was published in 2006 and I like to think women have moved on from ranking the condition of their necks above national security.

Here's an example of why it may not have resonated with me. After a divorce, Ephron finds a dreamy 5 bedroom apartment in Manhatten for herself and her two boys. She loves living there, but after being there a decade A New York law changes rent-stabiliazation for anyone paying over $2500 a month rent with an income above $250,000 a year and hers was raised. She was offered a three year lease with graduated increases over the three years beginning with $10,000 a month the first year. Year three it would be $12,000 a month. I know there are people who can identify with this and they may love the book. I think our lives may have been too different it was just boring to me. ( )

The first several chapters were absolutely hilarious but then it became so-so. In the beginning I thought she was going to be another Erma Bombeck. When she actually described aging effects it was fun. Later seemed to try to impress about her life - 3 marriages, in the White House, ability to live expensively. ( )

I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman This from the author of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle is a series of monologues about this that and life in general but from an aged woman's perspective.
 
The title article is really telling about body self-perception and the regret when you realise that the body you were uncomfortable with when younger was in fact pretty bloody good if only you had realised it at the time.
 
This should be compulsory reading in schools but I wouldn't hold my breath over that given the industrial might behind the industry of negative body image in the young. I particularly like the line about the face always being a lie but the neck is always the truth.Lots more besides here and well written. You get the impression that she would have been good company at any age. Bless Nora Ephron ( )

Some funny bits, better towards the end, but not a classic. ( )
