'Nora Ephron can write about anything better than anybody else can write about anything'
New York Times
A bitingly funny, provocative and revealing look at our foibles, passions and pastimes - from the much-missed, bestselling author of I Feel Bad About My Neck and I Remember Nothing.
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, was one of the most gifted, prolific and versatile writers of our time.
In this classic collection of magazine articles, Ephron does what she does best: embrace culture with love, cynicism and unmatched wit.
From tracking down the beginnings of the self-help movement, to dressing down the fashion world's most powerful publication, to capturing a glimpse of a legendary movie in the making, these timeless pieces tap into our enduring obsessions with celebrity, food, romance, clothes, entertainment and sex. Whether casting her ingenious eye on public figures or herself, Ephron deftly weaves her journalistic skill with the intimate style of an essayist and the incomparable talent of a great storyteller.
