Crazy Salad & Scribble Scribble. Wallflower at the Orgy.

Nora Ephron was one of the most insightful and humorous writers I have ever read. Her "I Hate my Neck" and "I Can't
Remember Anything" caused me to laugh out loud in so many sections. This, however, was simply a compilation of things she wrote in her other books with comments by others people (writers, editors, etc) about it. Go for the gusto and read everything she ever wrote instead of these short snippits.

I have been thinking about Nora Ephron ever since I saw her on an interview program, and then when she died. The relation of telling all, so to speak, and hiding one's deepest worries is a study and I am in the midst of it. As to this collection I like it. The style is both run on, one's top thoughts, and then a dip into the hidden feelings--all told with a careful choice of language and a sense of humor which carries her forth in times of distress in her life. I think her judgment of politicians and news reporters is refreshingly accurate, and I wish she could find more to admire--like Russell Baker, for instance. On the other hand, the news business or the press state of mind got a going over for its own good and I for one, am very glad of that. Nora Ephron enjoys her contempt for her fellow journalists, and at the same time feels important being one of them. Its a hard road to travel. Her circle of friends and associates did not include the large portion of the 98% and I wish it had. I learned from the philosophy Aesthetic Realism that one has to really like the world in order to want to fully express oneself in it or to it, and I wish Nora Ephron had been able to learn that, or feel that. She delighted many people with her perceptions, and I wish there could have even been more.

A woman who tells you how things are and makes you laugh at the same time. You feel alive, real, and here.

Witty, perspicacious, charming. Ephron delights with essays/columns on the volatile and turbulent 70s era. Her caustic wry humor is wonderfully entertaining. To me a brilliant and sharp intellect, my kind of journalist. Particularly moved by the Bob Haldeman and CBS essay so like today’s White House!

I love Nora and have read most of her books, etal. I gave it one extra star because it was Nora. Some of the stories just didn't read well for me, but the ones that did, made it worth reading. She's no longer here, and that's the saddest part of all.
Hinewen
Enjoyed the review of women in history as well as the essays about certain moments in time with the humor

Nora Ephron is always the best. If you miss her, like I do, read and reread everything she ever wrote. And then read and again, laugh and cry. I wish she were still here.
Even though I do not always agree with Ephron and it is outdated (as she often writes on topical subjects) her writing is so crisp and cleat that one can only learn from it. She can put a person right back in Nixon years and they can feel it.
Her piece on gender-reassignment as being an instigator of gender stereotypes (re:Jan Morris) was fascinating and put to words what I have been trying to say for years.
Great book, lots of fun.
