I Remember Nothing: and Other Reflections by Nora Ephron



Genre:
Non-Fiction

Publisher:
Random House Audio

Format:
Audio

Release Date:
November, 2010

Synopsis from Fantastic Fiction...

Nora Ephron returns with her first book since the astounding success of I Feel Bad About My Neck, taking a cold, 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.

Even as she's listing 'What I Won't Miss' and 'What I Will Miss' - making the final tally - Ephron reaches back to recount falling hard for a way of life ('Journalism: A Love Story' ) and breaking up even harder with the men in her life ('The D Word' ), a long- anticipated inheritance with entirely unanticipated results ('My Life as an Heiress' ), and the 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' ). All the while, she gives candid, charming voice to everything women who have reached a certain age have been thinking . . . but have rarely acknowledged.

Filled with insights and observations that instantly ring true - and could have come only from Nora Ephron - I Remember Nothing is a pure delight.

My thoughts...

Another fun book to listen to. I'm glad I listened to both her books on CDs. It's especially fun since the author narrates the books herself. I can easily identify with so many of her situations, even though she's older than me :) Overall, these are fun books to list to.

  1. This sounds good, and cool that the author narrates the book herself. I love the film You've Got Mail.
