‘A woman for all seasons, tender and tough in just the right proportions’
The New York Times
Two classic collections of uproarious essays from the late Nora Ephron, bestselling author of I Feel Bad About My Neck and I Remember Nothing. Here she tackles everything from feminism to the media, from politics to beauty products, with her inimitable charm and distinctive wit.
From her Academy Award-nominated screenplays (When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, Julie & Julia) to her bestselling fiction and essays, Nora Ephron, who died earlier this year, illuminated her era with wicked honesty and insight.
This collection 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 significant modern-day events. In these sharp, hilariously entertaining and vividly observed essays, from the famous ‘A Few Words About Breasts’ to important pieces on her time working for newspapers and magazines, this is Ephron at her very best.
