'Memories, aphorisms and stern good advice from America's favourite naughty aunt' Independent on Sunday
'This book is as grown-up as a dirty martini' Sunday Times
'Sharp as a knife' Daily Express

___

In her final book, Nora Ephron reflects on life, growing older, and everything she will and won't miss. Filled with Nora's trademark wit, wisdom and warmth.

* No one actually likes to admit they're old. The most they will cop to is that they're older. Or oldish.

* Freedom of the press belongs to the man who owns one.

* I have been forgetting things for years-at least since I was in my thirties. I know this because I wrote something about it at the time. I have proof. Of course, I can't remember exactly where I wrote about it, or when, but I could probably hunt it up if I had to.

MEDIA REVIEWS
You don't have to be old to appreciate this collection of memories, aphorisms and stern good advice from America's favourite naughty aunt... snigger-out-loud... Reading this book is a little like being sat down by an older, wiser friend... good advice indeed * Independent on Sunday *
Read Nora Ephron because she's funny, read her because she's wise, read her because she never writes a boring sentence, read her because she's sharp as a knife but her heart's in the right place... Enjoy! -- David Robson * Daily Express *
As always, she has an eye for the killer detail... a mixture of memoir, rants and observations... This book is as grown-up as a dirty martini -- Daisy Goodwin * The Sunday Times *
If we have to grow old (and as they say, consider the alternative) there's no better guide * People Magazine (Top 10 Books of 2010) *
Tantalizingly fresh and forthright... She's self-effacing and brilliant. I use lines of hers all the time... She's like Benjamin Franklin or Shakespeare: her words are now part of the fabric of the English language * The New York Times Book Review *

“Well worth a read”

A delightful, light-hearted look at the encroaching memory depletion of old age. Raised many a chuckle of recognition. An easy read. Now to read more of Nora Ephron.

“Not what I expected.”

I found this pretty dull and only a couple of anecdotes were entertaining. Disappointed.
