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

funny lighthearted fast-paced


She’s such a brilliant writer, I laughed out loud multiple times. I love this collection of essays. However, there is some pretty intense fatphobia and some insensitive statements (like referring to “Africa” repeatedly as if it’s a country) that a privileged white lady in 2006 would make. I was surprised that, in this series mining her life for comedy and insight, she never acknowledges the weirdness that her family had a cook growing up. But it’s a fascinating look into a celebrated writer’s life and I would definitely recommend it, especially to other writers!
