Two classic collections of Nora Ephron’s uproarious essays—tackling everything from feminism to the media, from politics to beauty products, with her inimitable charm and distinctive wit—now available in one book for the first time.
This edition brings together some of Ephron’s most famous writing on a generation of women (and men) who helped shape the way we live now, and on events ranging from the Watergate scandal to the Pillsbury Bake-Off. In these sharp, hilariously entertaining, and vividly observed pieces, Ephron illuminates an era with wicked honesty and insight. From the famous “A Few Words About Breasts” to important pieces on her time working for the New York Post and Gourmet Magazine, these essays show Ephron at her very best.

Nora Ephron-articulate, funny and intelligent
This is a great selection of pieces that Nora wrote-great observation about politics and the media
The story of the woman who was Nixon's secretary
She read so well that I felt I was listening to Nora herself
No not necessarily-it was great to be able to dip into
Yes, in a couple of years. It was a fascinating insight into life at the time of writing the book. A great variety of topics covered, some of which I spent time researching after hearing about them for the first time.
