Publisher Comments:

With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in I Feel Bad About My Neck, a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.

The woman who brought us When Harry Met Sally . . . discusses everything–from how much she hates her purse to how much time she spends attempting to stop the clock: the hair dye, the treadmill, the lotions and creams that promise to slow the aging process but never do. Oh, and she cant stand the way her neck looks. But her dermatologist tells her theres no quick fix for that.

Ephron chronicles her life, but mostly she speaks frankly and uproariously about life as a woman of a certain age.

Utterly courageous, wickedly funny, and unexpectedly moving in its truth telling, I Feel Bad About My Neck is an audiobook of wisdom, advice, and laugh-out-loud moments, a scrumptious, irresistible treat.

okay i am not a woman of a certian age but i fell in love with this lady's works of art a couple of years ago when i read her blog ,then heartburn and the essay from the 70's about boobage... really liked the essay on the purses (i am a disaster with purses and used to have a backpack purse)
i adored the one about the being entranced by a book and putting eveything on the back burner to finish it...
her best one was my life in 3500 hundred words or less..and how her mother said everything was copy....
and there's one about Bill Clinton.... that kinda made sad because its so true
i like how this book was written in stream of consciousness style and how she has a smart ass sense of humor,,,,
she was on the craig ferguson show and she did a monologue about the essay me and jfk .. and how she was an intern at the jfk whitehouse when she was very young, and how her whole job consisted of autographing pictures of jfk and there was no place for her to sit so she just get up and leave and roam all around the whitehouse and see what was happening, and how she lil miffed that jfk never get tried to get with her ... (if you don't read anything else read this... I could relate and the exact reason me and johnny depp will never get it on..
i didnt realize she was so tiny she really is... she looks like a grown up version of ramona quimby from the beverly cleary books..
when i read her blog i thought she was alot younger than 65......
anyway rent the book on tape its very easy to listen too...
