Publisher's Summary

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.

    What did you love best about I Remember Nothing?

    It was wonderful to listen to Nora Ephron tell her own story. Sad to have lost this wonderful writer, but nice to hear her voice one more time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I Remember Nothing?

    Her rant against egg white omelettes!

    "I Remember Nothing: and Other Reflections"

    This book was just so so. I do love the way Nora expresses herself and love the way her mind works and how she can verbalize it, but was kind of boring. Not very funny. Pretty serious. Some of the short stories were amusing but did not keep my interest. Kind of a sleeper. Disappointing. I expected more from Nora. I feel like I know this woman, or would like to know this woman. This book was simply a bunch of "short" stories from her personal life, her relationship with her mother, her siblings, and others...(yawnnnnn)

    "Elegant (as always)"

    Even when she is writing about mundane daily lie topics, Norah Ephron makes them more- more interesting, have more meaning and usually more fun. Maybe because her life has been so different from mine, I like being transported into Ms Ephron's day to day world.

    "A Huge Disappointment after I Feel Bad About My Ne"

    This book isn't at all like I Feel Bad About My Neck, it starts with how she forgets everything, but she remembers her early years in boring detail.

    "I feel like I spent time with my best friend"

    I'm so glad Nora was born and I will always be a little sad she's gone. It goes to show how a piece of your heart can be given away to someone who you've never met.

    "Loved it."

    If you are a woman in your 60's, it is a humerous look at life.

    "Essays to Enjoy"

    Nora Ephron reads several of her essays. I laughed out loud during a few while quietly enjoying others. Her narration lacks expression, which sometimes added to the humor, sometimes was flat. She expressed herself beautifully and it was a worthwhile listen.

    "A classic voice, great breadth of material"
    What did you love best about I Remember Nothing?

    I am a 33 year old business woman, and it was lovely to listen to stories of a pioneer career woman like Nora Ephron tell her tales of current and past conquests and misadventures.


    Any additional comments?

    Her intonation can be a little bizarre or redundant, but I always love hearing a writer read their own work. You believe the words more.

    "It wasn't long enough!"

    I just didn't want this book to end. I love Nora's stories and listening to her read them is just an absolute joy. I am sorry that we will no longer get to hear her voice. If you've liked her other non-fiction books, you should enjoy this one just as much.

    "Love Nora Ephron"

    It's great to hear her voice, with, and perspective. I was hoping it would sound more conversational than necessarily read from a book, since its her personal thoughts, but still very enjoyable.
