'Essential reading for anyone who hopes to grow old elegantly and perhaps a little disgracefully' Mail on Sunday
'She's like Benjamin Franklin or Shakespeare: her words are now part of the fabric of the English language' The New York Times
A collection of essays filled with wit and wisdom from Nora Ephron, Academy Award-winning screenwriter and film director (When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail) and bestselling author (Heartburn, I Feel Bad About My Neck).
* No one actually likes to admit they're old. The most they will cop to is that they're older. Or oldish.
* Freedom of the press belongs to the man who owns one.
* The Senior Moment has become the Google moment.
* I have been forgetting things for years at least since I was in my thirties. I know this because I wrote something about it at the time. I have proof. Of course, I can t remember exactly where I wrote about it, or when, but I could probably hunt it up if I had to.
'Read Nora Ephron because she's funny, read her because she's wise, read her because she never writes a boring sentence, read her because she's sharp as a knife but her heart's in the right place' Daily Express
