Product description

With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in "I Feel Bad About My Neck," a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself. Ephron chronicles her life as an obsessed cook, passionate city dweller, and hapless parent. But mostly she speaks frankly and uproariously about life as a woman of a certain age. Utterly courageous, uproariously funny, and unexpectedly moving in its truth telling, "I Feel Bad About My Neck" is a scrumptious, irresistible treat of a book, full of truths, laugh out loud moments that will appeal to readers of all ages.

Review quote

"Wickedly witty. . . . Crackling sharp. . . . Fireworks shoot out [of this collection]." --"The Boston Globe""Long-overdue. . . . Executed with sharpness and panache . . . . [Nora Ephron] retains an uncanny ability to sound like your best friend, whoever you are. . . . It's good to know that Ms. Ephron's wry, knowing X-ray vision is one of them." --"The New York Times""Women who find themselves somewhere between the arrival of their first wrinkle and death have to hear only the title to get the message."--"Los Angeles Times""Wry and amusing. . . . Marvelous." --"The Washington Post Book World"
