I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman

I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman by Nora Ephron

This book of vignettes on being 60+ would have lost much of its audacity had I not heard it read by the author on my iPod. The nasal New York tones flowing with New York stories added a dimension of wit, satire, and frustration. It was like listening to an obnoxious, gossipy, self-centered lady -- impossible to ignore, highly entertaining and covering topics from manicures, apartments, hair care, marriages, divorces, the bikini triangle, Bill Clinton, and JFK--a tour de force/farce--magnificent.

Ephron has written about women at different times of life, so Google her and find one that fits you. Well worth the read!

You might like to check out www.goodreads.com It is a cool way to share books you've read and learn about what others have read. I've discovered books I probably wouldn't have found on my own.

I just bought this book. I hope it's as enjoyable reading it and listening to it was.
