"If I said to you I absolutely cannot stand my neck , you'd undoubtedly respond by saying something nice, like, I don't know what you're talking about. You'd be lying, of course, but I forgive you. You can put makeup on your face and concealer under your eyes and dye on your hair, you can shoot collagen and Botox and Restylane into your wrinkles and creases, but short of surgery, there's not a damn thing you can do about a neck.'

Acclaimed Hollywood filmwriter and director Nora Ephron turns her sharp powers of observation back onto herself in these autobiographical essays as she examines the indignities of ageing for the Baby Boom generation. Filled with witty and biting essays like 'I Hate My Handbag', 'Blind as a Bat' and 'What I Wish I'd Known' this book offers the consolation that no matter how much your neck sags, your boobs droop, your skin wrinkles and your children don't appreciate you, someone has been there before you.

Laugh-out-loud funny, irreverent and brutally honest, Nora Ephron captures the essence of what it means to be a woman growing older in a book that will strike chords of empathy, heartbreak, and hilarity with any woman who reads it. "

WRITE A REVIEW

Laugh about life

3

Here's a good laugh about getting older - and not taking things too seriously. Not too often you laugh out loud while reading. Nora Ephron is one of the writers that brought 'You've Got Mail' and 'Sleepless in Seattle' to the screen. Light hearted fun.

"Wildly funny and, although extremely accurate (at least for most of us), not remotely depressing" -- Joanna Trollope "An uncanny ability to sound like your best friend, whoever you are" The New York Times "What's refreshing about Ephron is that she refuses to entertain any illusions about the terrible fate that awaits us. What's great about her is that she makes the truth about life so funny when it should be so grim" The Sunday Times "Wildly funny and, although extremely accurate (at least for most of us), not remotely depressing" -- Joanna Trollope "Few will troll these droll selections without being charmed to bits... Recall how hard it was last year to find a present for Mother's Day that wasn't yet one more box of chocolate? Remember this book. You'll thank me. It's perfect" -- Lionel Shriver Guardian
