'I give this as a present more than other book. I buy it for people so often that I've been known to give girlfriends two copies, one birthday after another' - DOLLY ALDERTON

A collection of wit and wisdom from Nora Ephron. The perfect Christmas gift for all the important women in your life - it will have you laughing into the New Year . . .

* Never marry a man you wouldn't want to be divorced from.

* If the shoe doesn't fit in the shoe store, it's never going to fit.

* When your children are teenagers, it's important to have a dog so that someone in the house is happy to see you.

* If only one third of your clothes are mistakes, you're ahead of the game.

* Anything you think is wrong with your body at the age of thirty-five you will be nostalgic for by the age of forty-five.

'Recall how hard it was last year to find a present for Mother's Day that wasn't yet one more box of chocolates? Remember this book. You'll thank me. It's perfect' LIONEL SHRIVER, Guardian

'I devoured her prose [and] became a fangirl right along with my mother, aunt, grandmother, and every other intelligent woman in the tristate area.' LENA DUNHAM

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book that most influenced me... It triggered me to write my own book, and ask myself questions about who I was, what kind of woman I am and how the world had shaped me. * LILY ALLEN, Guardian *
Few will troll these droll selections without being charmed to bits... Recall how hard it was last year to find a present for Mother's Day that wasn't yet one more box of chocolate? Remember this book. You'll thank me. It's perfect * Guardian *
An uncanny ability to sound like your best friend, whoever you are * The New York Times *
What's refreshing about Ephron is that she refuses to entertain any illusions about the terrible fate that awaits us. What's great about her is that she makes the truth about life so funny when it should be so grim * Sunday Times *
Wildly funny

“Mixture of frivilous irrelevancies and witty commentary on life”

This is a collection of essays from Ephron that talk about all those little annoyances that women have to live with as they get older, some of which were very interesting and others were not so. Each essay embraces... More

“Brilliant!”

My sister brought this book for me from El Paso, Texas and I read it in a couple of days, very funny and so true. Each chapter is a small essay, so it doesn't have to be read all in one go, but it's hard to... More

“Essays from a Master Storyteller”

Nora Ephron’s ‘I feel bad about my neck...’ is, disclaimer alert, not a universally relevant series of essays on womanhood. There is privilege here, from the rent controlled New York apartment she loved so much she... More
