Description

The perfect holiday gift: a pair of hilarious books from the "wickedly witty and astute" Nora Ephron, a "crackling smart cultural scribe" ("The Boston Globe") whose insights and observations have made her a heroine to women all over America.
Critics and readers embraced the nationwide best seller "I Feel Bad About My Neck--""Marvelous" ("The Washington Post"); "Sparkling" ("Ladies' Home Journal"); "Delightful" ("The""New York Review of Books")--and applauded Ephron for "mak ing] the truth about life so funny" ("The""Sunday Times, "London). In "I Remember Nothing "the beloved humorist returns with more razor-sharp reflections on growing older in the twenty-first century, along with those stories from the past she hasn't (yet) forgotten.
I Feel Bad About My Neck
and Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice and dry sense of humor, Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in this wise, wonderful look at women of a certain age who are dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and everything in between. Ephron chronicles her life as an obsessed cook, a passionate city dweller, and a hapless parent. But mostly she speaks frankly and uproariously about getting older. Utterly courageous, unexpectedly moving, and laugh-out-loud funny, "I Feel Bad About My Neck "is a scrumptious, irresistible treat of a book.
I Remember Nothing
and Other Reflections
Ephron takes a cool, hard, hilarious look at the past, the present, and the future, writing about falling hard for a way of life ("Journalism: A Love Story") and breaking up even harder with the men in her life ("The D Word"); revealing the alarming evolution, a decade after she wrote and directed "You've Got Mail, "of her relationship with her in-box ("The Six Stages of E-mail"); and asking the age-old question, which came first, the chicken soup or the cold? All the while, she gives voice to everything women have been thinking . . . but rarely acknowledging. Filled with insights and observations that instantly ring true--and could have come only from Nora Ephron--"I Remember Nothing" is pure joy.
" Ephron] retains an uncanny ability to sound like your best friend, whoever you are . . . Some things don't change. It's good to know that Ms. Ephron's wry, knowing X-ray vision is one of them." " --The New York Times"
"Nora Ephron has become timeless." --"Los Angeles Times Book Review
