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.

    "Whiney and Irritating"

    Maybe I'm just not a fan of Ephron's essay writing style, but I found most of these essays too self-involved to be interesting and too scattered or random to function as a memoir. Also a perfect example of why most writers should leave the narration to the professionals. Her voice makes the writing even more irritating, and sometimes she couldn't even read her own prose to give the right rhythm to the sentences so they were difficult to follow.
    The title essay is amusing, but the rest I had to slog through to be able to discuss at book group.

    "Funny and entertaining for the over-60 crowd"

    I listened to this book on a road trip with my sister, and we got a lot of laughs out of it. If you are of a certain age, this can be most entertaining. Nora Ephron is humorous and has the talent to pick out the little parts of life that change as one gets older. Women will get a kick out of this!

    "Good Ephron"

    Good if brief collection of essays by the writer. Very funny. Wanted more! Also recommend her previous volume.

    "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)

    "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.
