'Old friends? We must be. You're delighted to see me. I'm delighted to see you. But who are you? Oh, my God you're Ellen. I can't believe it...I'd like to suggest that the reason I didn't recognize you is that you've done something to your hair, but you've done nothing to your hair...What you've actually done is gotten older. I don't believe it. You used to be my age, and now you're much, much older than I am. You could be my mother.' If there is any solace in growing older, it is that you will find yourself snorting with laughter in recognition at the situations described by Nora Ephron, the Academy Award-winning creator of When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and Julie and Julia. In this new book, she confronts everything that is frustrating about modern life, from the impossibility of trying to remember people's names at parties, to her struggles with the new technology. She will also regale you with her witty memories of her life, at least of everything she hasn't (yet) forgotten. One thing is for sure, there is no-one else who can put her finger so very precisely, so beguilingly, with so much wisdom and so much humour, on everything women who have reached a certain age have been thinking...but rarely acknowledge.
Good. 3 AUDIO CDs in the clamshell case withdrawn from the library collection. Some library marking and sticker to the set. We will polish each of the CDs for a worthwhile sound quality. Enjoy this reliable AUDIO CD performance.

Funny. She makes the aging process both funny and sad. Loved it.

As always, she's hilarious.
I've never been disappointed in a Nora Ephron book, and this one was no exception. It was funny, informative, believeable, and interesting.

This audio book was given as a gift to a friend of mine. She drives for hours at a time with her job and listening to books is a great entertainment for her - better than road noise! She very much enjoyed this book and wants more!
