Sometimes the term "Narrated by the Author" is a good thing - think Bill Bryson, for instance. Unfortunately, Nora Ephron is no Bill Bryson. Her narration of this funny, smart book about life as an urban woman "of a certain age" is so grating that it is difficult to listen to for any significant length of time. Although Ms. Ephron's voice is high-pitched and whiny, I could have lived with that. Far more annoying is her sing-song cadence, and overly dramatic inflection. This is probably the only Audio Book I have ever heard that made me wish I had chosen the print version instead.
