_____________________________________ 'Essential reading for anyone who hopes to grow old elegantly and perhaps a little disgracefully' Mail on Sunday 'She's like Benjamin Franklin or Shakespeare: her words are now part of the fabric of the English language' The New York Times A collection of essays filled with wit and wisdom from Nora Ephron, Academy Award-winning screenwriter and film director (When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail) and bestselling author (Heartburn, I Feel Bad About My Neck). * 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. * The Senior Moment has become the Google moment. * 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. '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' Daily Express _____________________________________

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.
