I Feel Bad About My Neck - and other thoughts on being a woman
Ephron, Nora
Book Number: 60599
ISBN: 9780552773812
Black Swan 2008 8vo. Softcover. 209pp. Very good. 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 (When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail) 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 wickedly witty autobiographical pieces 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. Nora Ephron captures the essence of what it means to be a grumpy old woman, in a laugh-out-loud funny, frank and unexpectedly moving book that will be an irresistible treat for any woman who reads it.
