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

funny hopeful informative lighthearted reflective relaxing fast-paced


Not for every woman, shows a level of rich, white privilege but it is memoirish so it’s about her own problems but not always relatable. Not the type of feminist centered writing I expected but instead looked at the more mundane “issues” Ephron reflected on like how she “had to get her hair and nails done twice a week to feel good.”
Despite the above, it was nice to have a lighter, funny approach to the ideas of womanhood compared to the serious often dark tragedies that comes with being a woman.
Short quick read and quite enjoyable despite some moments of privilege and fatphobia.
