I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts On Being A Woman (2006)


If you don’t know who Nora Ephron was, it is time to go back to 1980s romantic comedies. She wrote classics like When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and Silkwood. This book is a collection of short essays by Ephron, mostly dealing with her personal experience as a woman aging in America. Her insights are razor sharp, and she knows how to write a joke. Most women, even those who are not reaching “a certain age” as she calls it, will appreciate them. Personally, I fully related to I Hate My Purse. Her belief that the inside of her purse was an insight into her messy, disorganized self, hits right on target for me. The book is full of essays that have been previously published, including in Reader’s Digest, and managed to hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. I am certain that if you read this, you will be promoted to read other books by Ephron, and brush up on her filmography. At 137 pages, it is a pleasant read. #ifeelbadaboutmyneck #noraephron #essays #comedy #aging #romcom #icon #1 #1bestseller #bestseller #newyorktimesbestsellers #bookstagram #book #bookstagrammer #books #read #reading #bibliophile #2006 #kalidesautelsreads
