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

challenging emotional funny hopeful informative inspiring reflective sad fast-paced
  • I had no idea Heartburn was based so heavily on Nora Ephron’s actual life, no wonder it felt so true and authentic!  
  • Imagine my disappointment when she mentioned what one of her favourite, more enrapturing books was, and it was a book I’d already read and *hated*, so upsetting, just when I though Nora and I had so much in common…
  • Saying that, reading this felt like a catch-up with a messy and brilliant friend, I could easily read hundreds more pages of her experiences. 
  • The final essay about death and getting older was such a vulnerable and heartbreaking experience. I feel like I could learn a lot from her.
