Publisher Description

Nora Ephron returns with her first book since the astounding success of I Feel Bad About My Neck, taking a cool, hard, hilarious look at the past, the present, and the future, bemoaning the vicissitudes of modern life, and recalling with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn’t (yet) forgotten.

Ephron writes about falling hard for a way of life (“Journalism: A Love Story”) and about breaking up even harder with the men in her life (“The D Word”); lists “Twenty-five Things People Have a Shocking Capacity to Be Surprised by Over and Over Again” (“There is no explaining the stock market but people try”; “You can never know the truth of anyone’s marriage, including your own”; “Cary Grant was Jewish”; “Men cheat”); reveals the alarming evolution, a decade after she wrote and directed You’ve Got Mail, of her relationship with her in-box (“The Six Stages of E-Mail”); and asks the age-old question, which came first, the chicken soup or the cold? All the while, she gives candid, edgy voice to everything women who have reached a certain age have been thinking . . . but rarely acknowledging.

Filled with insights and observations that instantly ring true—and could have come only from Nora Ephron—I Remember Nothing is pure joy.

I remember nothing

Good quick read for Ephron fans. Not the funniest thing she has written, but interesting and entertaining, even a bit poignant as she must have known the state of her failing health. Glad I read this.

I Remember Nothing

As a Nora Ephron fan I was enjoying this book.. until I realized how mean spirited it was becoming. Her bragging of making fun of other people was surprisingly sad. Her list of who she and her family felt were the in crowd was condescending and only made the other bad reviews of this book true. Looks like the title “I Remember Nothing “ only to true.
