Book Description

Two classic collections of Nora Ephron’s uproarious essays—tackling everything from feminism to the media, from politics to beauty products, with her inimitable charm and distinctive wit—now available in one book for the first time. 
 
This edition brings together some of Ephron’s most famous writing on a generation of women (and men) who helped shape the way we live now, and on events ranging from the Watergate scandal to the Pillsbury Bake-Off. In these sharp, hilariously entertaining, and vividly observed pieces, Ephron illuminates an era with wicked honesty and insight. From the famous “A Few Words About Breasts” to important pieces on her time working for the New York Post and Gourmet Magazine, these essays show Ephron at her very best.


Editorial Reviews

Review

“A woman for all seasons, tender and tough in just the right proportions.” —The New York Times
 
“A tremendously talented woman from a significant American period. . . . tremendous talent is her forte, her strong suit, her fiendish trump card.” —The Washington Post 
  
“Truly funny and wonderfully wise.” —Chicago Tribune
 
“Witty whiplash prose—a delight to read.” —Publishers Weekly

 “Nora Ephron can write about anything better than anybody else can write about anything.” —The New York Times

“Stylish, opinionated, with a kind of take-no-prisoners fearlessness rooted in both the women’s movement and the equally complex terrain of her own emotions” —Los Angeles Times

“As tart and refreshing as the first gin and tonic of summer.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A brilliant, restless mind.” —Ms.

“Funny, shrewd, devastating.” —Newsweek

“Nora Ephron is, in essence, one of the original bloggers—and if everyone could write like her, what a lovely place the Internet would be. . . . telling stories that were, more often than not, ultimately about herself, and doing so with such warmth, wit and skill that they became universal.” —The Seattle Times 

 “Always funny.” —Mademoiselle

“Pure delight.” —Playboy

4.0 out of 5 stars Good reminder of how things were.... January 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you remember the 70's this book will bring back memories. Ephron's wit and style come through her sometimes biting reviews of social issues and events of that decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars CRAZY SALAD AND SCRIBBLE SCRIBBLE - Nora Ephron January 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a marvelous collection. For those who 'were there' at the time these essays were written, the enjoyment of revisiting the past will be total. For the reader new to Ephron, I only say read these essays, this is the way it was then & she is a one of a kind & will be sorely missed.

Nora Ephron was a wonderful writer. I'm so glad we have these books of essays of hers. They are delightful - never know what you're going to get from one essay to the next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure Ephron and wonderful as always! December 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ephron can capture the highs and lows of womanhood and make us laugh about them, whether they are magnificent mountaintops or lugubrious lows. She takes any situation and gives it a fresh perspective to make it funny. I dearly love this woman's writing. I've read several of her books since I got my Kindle (thanks, daughter and son-in-law for the Christmas gift a couple of years ago), and I chuckle,laugh, bellow, hee-haw, giggle and otherwise make a fool of myself in public. Yes, I read it in restaurants, waiting in line to get a cafeteria tray, sitting in medical waiting rooms, in bed before falling asleep, even in the car at stop lights (oh, stop honking!). I'm an obsessive, compulsive, omnivorous, read-all-the-time addict since I was a wee little girl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nora Ephron January 5, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love her books and am so sorry she will no longer be writing her wonderful books and screenplays. I ordered this latest 2 books combined by her so I would have all her books. Enjoy just picking this one up and reading a chapter here and there.

I plan to read everything she wrote. Really relatable stuff, especially for the 60+ generation! and the 70+ generation - we lived a lot of this!

3.0 out of 5 stars Forever witty January 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These two essay collections have been combined and reissued in one volume. They are typical Ephron, with sharp observations and wonderful wit. Not surprisingly, some of them, written in the 70s, feel very dated. I recommend this work to Ephron fans old enough to be familiar with the 70s,but not to younger readers, who would scratch their heads in puzzlement over some of the people and events referred to in these essays.
