The Review

I love it when people just write about stuff. I know that sounds really random but it is the main reason I love British born writer Caitlin Moran and it is also the reason I love Nora Ephron – whom I believe was Caitlin Moran’s writing mirror image.

Nora Ephron wrote about stuff. Her style was witty and sassy but charming and engaging. I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts on Being a Woman is a brilliant collection of essays on what it is like to grow up and indeed grow old. She was so easy to read that I am both, at once, devastated that she is no longer around to write anything new and equally happy that I still have a backlog of her writing to get through.

I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts on Being a Woman by Nora Ephron is available now.
