HASH(0x93e0ace4) out of 5 stars Disappointing if you've read th original edition 11 July 2000
By Marie Braden - Published on
Format: Paperback
I feel completely bilked by this book. I had read the original edition, and loved it, when I was a teenager, so was thrilled to see it back in print. WELL! Unfortunately, the editors have actually taken a few of the articles from the original, packed in a few chapters of Scribble Scribble (which I loathed), and a random Esquire article. Ugh! I wanted the RoseMary Woods chapter. I wanted the Linda Lovelace chapter. I wanted the articles I remembered fondly. Instead, I got this dreck. The only reason I don't rate it even lower is because the writing is, as ever, quite good. But if it's not going to be the actual book it purports to be, I wish Modern Library would change the title....

HASH(0x93e0ad38) out of 5 stars Nora Ephron - helps me keep sane during my new chapter after leaving my job and turning 57! 21 Mar. 2011
By Laurie S. Kaczanowska - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Nora Ephron's books generally are the best tonic for a woman who is about to embark on a new life after retirement. Which is my case, 57 year old former City Attorney moves to Poland, culture shock, no job identity, body is looking run down, want to start a new life and do it with the right attitude- she is helping me do it! Her humor lifts up my day and makes me laugh at myself. I love her and all of her books!!!! I can't wait to see her broadway show!

HASH(0x9432ff84) out of 5 stars A Laugh Out Loud Good Read 9 May 2010
By DJY51 - Published on
Ephron manages to maintain her humor about issues germane to feminists, while poking merciless fun at those who just don't get it. She is equally at home interviewing Linda Lovelace and Dorothy Parker, revealing as much about herself as her subjects.
She can be glib at times, and probably has to work at not being flip even more often, but nevertheless, she's interesting in small doses.

HASH(0x943300b0) out of 5 stars Hilarious Dorothy Parker of the 70's 8 July 2007
By Charles Morgan - Published on
Ephron's account of the 10th reunion of the Wellesley class of '62 is priceless!
A writer sympathetic to the feminist movement, she was never-the-less a
reporter first, who strove not to polemicize too much for or against any of the
disparate forces which made up the women's movement in the '70's. Her
transparent honesty is 90% of what makes it so funny.

HASH(0x94c3d09c) out of 5 stars It's not at all like "I Feel Bad About My Neck" (the new book) 7 July 2007
By Gromer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought Crazy Salad (the original edition, from Amazon, used), after reading the new "I Feel Bad About My Neck". I really enjoyed the breezy chatty style of the new book, and the personal, witty essays about mundane things (purses, beauty regime, food). Crazy Salad isn't like that at all - it is more journalistic and newsy, and the dated essays are about 1970's politics (incl. gender politics) and political figures that have since been forgotten (I was only a baby then, so forgive me if I don't find these references meaningful). If you want a dip into what the women's movement was like in the early 70's, buy this book. If you just want a funny read, this book is not the one to buy. Also, it's not really about women, the title is misleading - it covers a whole bunch of news topics.
