Waterstones Says

Frequently appearing in reader’s lists of all-time favourite funny books, this is Nora Ephron’s knife-sharp and deliciously acerbic take on womanhood. Now with a new introduction by Dolly Alderton, I Feel Bad About My Neck is a must-read combination of wisdom, wit and wincingly accurate home truths.

Now with an introduction from Dolly Alderton, author of Everything I Know About Love, revealing how a new generation of women can take inspiration from Nora's sharp wit and wisdom about life.

‘Nora’s exacting, precise, didactic, tried-and-tested, sophisticated-woman-wearing-all-black wisdom is a comfort and a relief. It’s why 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

* 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.

“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
