ora Ephron returns with her first book since
I Feel Bad About My Neck
taking a hilarious look at the past, present, and the future, bemoaning the vicissitudes of modern life and recalling with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn't (yet) forgotten.
he above quote (from the back cover of her newest work) sums up what she has remembered and written of well. If you are in need of a good laugh – not merely a titter, but a chuckle or downright guffaw –
I Remember Nothing
is the book for you.
he volume is filled with fun observations that make the reader understand just where Nora (may I call you that, please, Nora? I feel I know you. Or better yet, YOU know ME) is coming from and why.
ora's insights fit right into your own life and help to blast the feeling that you yourself are unique in this ole world for thinking or feeling the way you do. You are not alone.
he laments the fact that life is marching on (in my case running like the devil is after me) but it is still good. Yes, it is. I recently sat in a restaurant with three dear friends, all of us wearing faux Viking helmets in honor of our Icelandic comrade and having a blast. We're all still capable of seeing the humor in our situations.
ossibly Nora is more able than most of us, but it is most assuredly worth trying. And benefiting from her wise and wonderful look at life.
