From the Hardcover edition.
Nora Ephron returns with her first book since the astounding success of I Feel Bad About My Neck,
taking a cool, hard, hilarious look at the past, the present, and the future, bemoaning the vicissitudes of modern life, and recalling with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn't (yet) forgotten.
Ephron writes about falling hard for a way of life (Journalism: A Love Story) and about breaking up even harder with the men in her life (The D Word); lists Twenty-five Things People Have a Shocking Capacity to Be Surprised by Over and Over Again (There is no explaining the stock market but people try; You can never know the truth of anyone's marriage, including your own; Cary Grant was Jewish; Men cheat); reveals the alarming evolution, a decade after she wrote and directed You've Got Mail,
of her relationship with her in-box (The Six Stages of E-Mail); and asks the age-old question, which came first, the chicken soup or the cold? All the while, she gives candid, edgy voice to everything women who have reached a certain age have been thinking . . . but rarely acknowledging.
