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

Near the end of the book, she seemed to string sentences together, no matter if the fit the story or not.

If you are a Nora Ephron fan, you will enjoy this collection of essays and columns from the 1970's.

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.

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.

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.

Nora Ephron never failed to entertain me. She will be missed in so many areas. This collection is one of my favorites and will be re-read.

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!

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.
