Synopsis

'Memories, aphorisms and stern good advice from America's favourite naughty aunt' Independent on Sunday 'This book is as grown-up as a dirty martini' Sunday Times 'Sharp as a knife' Daily Express___In her final book, Nora Ephron reflects on life, growing older, and everything she will and won't miss. Filled with Nora's trademark wit, wisdom and warmth.* No one actually likes to admit they're old. The most they will cop to is that they're older. Or oldish.* Freedom of the press belongs to the man who owns one.* I have been forgetting things for years-at least since I was in my thirties. I know this because I wrote something about it at the time. I have proof. Of course, I can't remember exactly where I wrote about it, or when, but I could probably hunt it up if I had to.___Praise for Nora Ephron'So bold and so vulnerable at the same time. I don't know how she did it' Phoebe Waller-Bridge 'Oh how I loved Nora Ephron' Nigella Lawson 'Funny, knowing and smart' India Knight 'Nora's exacting, precise, didactic, tried-and-tested, sophisticated-woman-wearing-all-black wisdom is a comfort and a relief' Dolly Alderton

I Remember Nothing and other reflections
Not what I expected.
I found this pretty dull and only a couple of anecdotes were entertaining. Disappointed.
