I listened to this as an audiobook read by Nora Ephron herself and, really, I am now convinced that this is the best way to 'read' a memoir because no one knows their stuff better than the person who lived it. Although, this is not a memoir as much as a collection of short personal essays including her interesting professional life and how she got to be a writer of books, plays and movies. Nora has a wonderfully droll sense of humor and observation about life and aging that had me chuckling and cringing with familiarity. What an enjoyable listen this was.
Nora Ephron returns with her first book since the astounding success of I Feel Bad About My Neck, taking a cool, hard, hilarious look at the past, the present and the future, bemoaning the vicissitudes of modern life and recalling with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn't (yet) forgotten.
