The magazine piece that made her famous in the s, 'A Few Words about Breasts, ' is a long kvetch about her flat chest. 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. This delightful collection of personal essays. I also liked her essays about how we fall in love with concepts, places, and people.

Nothing is off limits to her, even personal humiliation—especially personal humiliation. The truth about aging told with honesty and a liberal dose of humor By Bluestalking Reader on Oct 03, Never mind the grammatically horrendous title, this is one entertaining book of essays on the subject of aging, most especially as it applies to women. But she does it in her inimitable, witty style. There are small victories, however, which Ephron chronicles along with her life as overachieving cook, loyal friend and mother, hard-working writer and fashion frump who disses purses but loves black turtlenecks. They will relate to her frustration with everyday tasks and pressures. Most writers don't want to think about aging.

Do you want to know what she found meaningful in her life? The actual Ephron is praised by friends as smart, a perfect housekeeper, much prettier than the person she began depicting in Wallflower at the Orgy, her essays from the Seventies, a wonderful cook, etc. This usually involves dividing the cost of the item I can't afford by the number of years I'm planning to use it, and if that doesn't work, by the number of days or hours or minutes, until I get to a number that is less that the cost of a cup of cappuccino. Ephron's parents based Sandra Dee's character in the play and film Take Her, She's Mine with Jimmy Stewart on their year-old daughter Nora and her letters to them from college. You can't recapture youth, but you can get more than a few laughs from this book - go for it! What she knows about Hollywood could surely fill a book, but she still has to work there.

She was gorgeous and radiant in a gray and white dress as she spoke words that would guide her son in wisdom. But most of these essays work as comic relief, tailor-made to the publications in which they first appeared an essay for O is significantly gushier than one written for The New Yorker but executed with overall sharpness and panache.

Hard to Find 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.

All the creams and surgical procedures are mentioned, and Ephron will tell you what she's done and what she hasn't, but that isn't the main point of the book. Nora candidly shares her own experiences. The smaller blazes are bursts of wit that cast the familiar so sharply as to make it seem new.

The stories often bring up memories or thoughts of a personal cabbage strudel quest. Upon becoming a successful writer, she wrote a column on women's issues for Esquire.

My reading of late has been more dense and serious, so this was a wonderful palate cleanser. She says that there are so many books out there about what I Feel Bad About My Neck book do after menopause etc, but none addressed your neck change as you age so she thought this was a cute and funny title.

Her droll take on traditionally gooey topics like motherhood and marriage makes the tender observations that much more unexpected. They get it that she gets it, and thank God for that.

She talks about maintenance being a second career because a lot of women are pre-empting age. What she knows about Hollywood could surely fill a book, but she still has to work there.

By Cynthia K. That's my prescription. Ephron chronicles her life as an obsessed cook, passionate city dweller, and hapless parent. And then I was moved to tears by what she said. Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. Ephron, journalist, novelist and screenwriter, bemoans getting old and all the maintenance needed just to tread water.
