Acclaimed Hollywood filmwriter and director Nora Ephron 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 captrues 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.
Nora Ephron is Academy Award-winning screenwriter and film director of When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail and Bewitched. She is also a bestselling novelist (Heartburn, made into a film starring Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep), journalist and essayist (Crazy Salad). She lives in New York City with her husband, writer Nicholas Pileggi.
