    DescriptionIf there is any solace in growing older, it is that you will find yourself guffawing in hysterical recognition at the situations Nora Ephron describes, from the impossibility of trying to remember people's names at parties,to struggling with the new technology. You will find yourself rolling off the sofa snorting with laughter as she recalls with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn't (yet) forgotten, including what it feels like to produce a flop - and you will swallow down a lump in your throat at the poignancy of her insights into the pain of losing friends, and the guilt of separation and divorce. One thing is for sure, there is nobody else who can put her finger so very precisely, so beguilingly, with so much wisdom and with so much wit, on what we all struggle with as we journey into our later years.

    Review quote
    "You don't have to be old to appreciate this collection of memories, aphorisms and stern good advice from America's favourite naughty aunt..snigger-out-loud...Reading this book is a little like being sat down by an older, wiser friend...good advice indeed." Independent on Sunday "Read Nora Ephron because she's funny, read her because she's wise, read her because she never writes a boring sentence, read her because she's sharp as a knife but her heart's in the right place...Enjoy!" -- David Robson Daily Express "As always, she has an eye for the killer detail...a mixture of memoir, rants and observations...This book is as grown-up as a dirty martini." -- Daisy Goodwin Sunday Times "If we have to grow old (and as they say, consider the alternative) there's no better guide. " People Magazine (Top 10 Books of 2010) "Tantalizingly fresh and forthright ... She's self-effacing and brilliant. I use lines of hers all the time... She's like Benjamin Franklin or Shakespeare: her words are now part of the fabric of the English language." New York Times Book Review
