Publisher Description

Nora Ephron returns with her first audiobook 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”; “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. Filled with insights and observations that instantly ring true—and could have come only from Nora Ephron—I Remember Nothing is pure joy.

    " I love Nora Ephron, she's so funny and so real, and she tells some great stories in this book. I especially like when she's talking about hoping she gets this big inheritance from her uncle so she can stop writing this awful screenplay that no one will want to buy anyway, but she doesn't get the big inheritance and the screenplay turns out to be When Harry Met Sally, one of the greatest movies ever. Quick, fun reading. "

    " This is the first Nora Ephron book I have read and I will read more as I loved her style of writing. It is witty and flows effortlessly off the page and the stories are good and oh so funny- I read it in one sitting! "

    " The first reflection pretty much sums up my life. I was laughing out loud. I really like this woman and admire her work i.e. "Sleepless in Seattle/" "

    " Another reviewer stole my comment...fluffy and delightful. I laughed more while reading "I feel bad about my neck" but this was fun to read-a delightful reprieve from the reality that is my life. "

    " 3.5 stars. Easy, quick read. Great quotes. I read it mainly because I wanted to familiarize myself more with Nora Ephron. If I was a journalist or any kind of writer for that matter, I suspect that I would really love this book. "

    " Not quite as funny as I Feel Bad About My Neck and definitely sad towards the end. "

    " About 1/3 to 1/2 of the essays were really enjoyable. The rest were the equivalent of "you kids get off my lawn!" or somebody's awful Seinfield imitation (what's the deal with Teflon? It helps you cook, but then it kills you. Amiright?). "

    " I listened to this book via audible. A hit maker of the movie now turns to 70. Although Ephron has a difficulty in remembering and/or memorising things, her sharp sense of humor never lusts. I will enjoy this book a lot more when I reread it 20 years later. "

    " I really like Ephron's writing style. Her quirky humor is also well worth the read. For women approaching or in their senior years, this is a time to laugh at growing old. "

    " Well, the last fifteen pages were good.... Other than that I'm not sure why I wasted my time reading it. "

    " This book kept me laughing the entire time. Maybe since I'm still "approaching 50" I could get a good laugh AT it. I'm sure that the closer to that half century (oh, crap,) mark I get, the less funny the growing older hilarity might not be quite so hilarious!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5

    " A fast, easy read. It had stories about the 60's, Hollywood blacklisting and jouralism that I would have enjoyed more if I were familar with the era's she was discussing. It reminded me a little of a Woody Allen film. "

    " While Ephron's voice reminded me of her movies like When Harry Met Sally and You Got Mail, I also learned from this book that she is quite concerned about politics. There were also some funny stories about other writers like Lillian Hellman and Phoebe Ephron. "

    " Sweet and sad. What a clean writer. Even if her subject matter isn't always interesting, her way of writing about it is. "

    " I had seen this author interviewed on one or two talk shows and was looking forward to being entertained by more funny stories in the book. Unfortunately, I think the best stories were shared on the talk shows. Much of the book was not at all funny but actually negative and even depressing. "

    " Too New York-ish, only the 1st and lat chapter had anything to do with "remembering nothing" as one ages. "

    " I "listened" to this book, narrated by the author so made it interesting to hear her inflections and emphasis and dry humor. "
