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.The woman who brought us When Harry Met Sally . . . , Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail, and Bewitched, and the author of best sellers Heartburn, Scribble Scribble, and Crazy Salad, discusses everything—from how much she hates her purse to how much time she spends attempting to stop the clock: the hair dye, the treadmill, the lotions and creams that promise to slow the aging process but never do. Oh, and she can’t stand the way her neck looks. But her dermatologist tells her there’s no quick fix for that.Ephron chronicles her life as an obsessed cook, passionate city dweller, and hapless parent.  She recounts her anything-but-glamorous days as a White House intern during the JFK years (“I am probably the only young woman who ever worked in the Kennedy White House that the President did not make a pass at”) and shares how she fell in and out of love with Bill Clinton—from a distance, of course.  But mostly she speaks frankly and uproariously about life as a woman of a certain age.Utterly courageous, wickedly funny, and unexpectedly moving in its truth telling, I Feel Bad About My Neck is a book of wisdom, advice, and laugh-out-loud moments, a scrumptious, irresistible treat.

4.0 Funny, witty, and a little absurd, but all true!
I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman - Nora Ephron Nora Ephron is a woman I have a lot of respect for. She wrote my favorite movie of all time, When Harry Met Sally. I adore that movie and watch at least one per month much to my husband's chagrin (but I digress). I ...

5.0 I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman - Nora Ephron
I don't feel bad about my neck. I might someday be a woman in turtlenecks and scarves, but I kind of doubt it. I've never been divorced, let alone remarried, never lived in New York, I hate cooking, and am fairly indifferent about what I eat. So, pretty much nothing in common with Nora Ephron. She w...

3.0 I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
I have mixed feelings about this - equally mixed - collection. Some essays are outstandingly good: these are "Moving On", "The Story of My Life in 3,500 Words or Less", and "Considering the Alternative". I appreciated "Serial Monogamy: A Memoir", "Parenting in Three Stages " and "The Lost Strudel or...

4.5 I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
I was ready to give this a solid 4 stars: a solid collection of essays and columns written by Nora Ephron. They were all good and mostly amusing, although none of them made me laugh out loud. Then I got to the last essay, Considering the Alternative and she wowed me. She had me laughing out loud...

CRAP!I am of an age that I now empathize with these stories instead of just finding them amusing.Damnation.Ok. I don't relate to all the stories. For instance, I don't live in an apt. in NYC, though I do completely understand having a ridiculous amount of love for one's home and community.I don't do...
