I picked this up as a break between my attempts at Brandon Sanderson's "The Way of Kings," hoping for a bit of comic relief. I don't remember reading any of Ephron's essays before, and was a little disappointed to find that they don't really appeal to me as much as others have raved about them. ( )

Ephron writers honestly about aging, marriage, and career with humor and without rancor. My favorite story Aruba, deals with the uncontrollablilty of her hair and the refusal of people to mention that her hair has taken on a mind of its own and she has a bald spot she cannot see on the back of her head.

I Remember Nothing, by Nora Ephron, is a collection of twenty-three personal reflections that address the many aspects of aging with insight and wit.

The challenges of new technology, a failing memory and the passing of family members are poignant and relatable.

While the piece, Journalism – A Love Story, is a pocket history of the demise of the industry, it’s also a glory-days story, the kind we all love to tell about when we were in our prime and things were different–meaning better.

Other topics discussed include humorous personal peccadilloes and relationships; the temporary, the enduring, how some flourish with time, whiles others become unsustainable.

If you’re honest, and of a certain age, you’ll agree there’s not one good thing to be said about getting old, including admitting to it. In this short book, Nora Ephron faces it head-on and her courage and honesty are an inspiration to this aging reader/writer. ( )

Pick for those who like to read celebrity memoirs. These essays and short pieces included a lot of name-dropping and gossipy details of her personal life. (Whereas some of her other works, fiction and otherwise, might be more relatable.) ( )

There’s plenty of Ephron’s usual wit in these reminiscences, which zip about in subject from her career and famous friends to her loathing for egg white omelettes and all they represent. But beneath the jaunty cover and droll, self-conscious title lies an unflinching examination of what it feels like to grow old and watch your friends die.

Reading this book is a little like being sat down by an older, wiser friend, who hands you a large gin and tonic and says: "Now listen carefully, because I haven't got much time." There are chapters called "Flops" (about her movies), "The Six Stages of Email" (v funny, lol) and "My Life as a Meat Loaf", about the time when Graydon Carter set up a restaurant and named the dish after her. "I'd hoped for a dance step, or a pair of pants," she reflects. "But I was older now, and I was willing to settle for a meat loaf." There are several short chapters each beginning "I Just Want To Say ...", about the egg-white omelette, Teflon, chicken soup, and "No, I do not want another bottle of Pellegrino". These are not meant to be confused with "something actually important, like the war in Afghanistan", but they also really must be stopped.

Yet her once razor-sharp wit now strays into grumpy Andy Rooney territory. Ephron is irascible and shallow, and occasionally verges on self-parody when she dedicates an entire essay to an eponymous meat loaf.

Much of Ephron’s petulant kvetching about expensive restaurants and inconsiderate friends appears Marie Antoinette-ish. I also found it hard to swallow Ephron’s gripes about annoying e-mail and erratic Internet experts while she consulted Google to bolster her ailing memory.
 
“I Remember Nothing” is fluffy and companionable, a nifty airport read from a writer capable of much, much more.

En zo zijn we weer terug bij de conferentie over internet die ik vorige week bezocht. Het zal niet verbazen dat daar een nieuwe onomstotelijk geachte waarheid naar voren werd gebracht, namelijk dat er miljarden te verdienen zijn met reclame op internet. Plotseling was duidelijk geworden dat er heel veel geld is voor reclame en dat je alleen maar voor wat content hoefde te zorgen waar adverteerders iets naast konden zetten. Ik moest denken aan wat internetbedrijven tegenwoordig onder 'content' verstaan: 'iets waar adverteerders iets naast kunnen zetten'.
Dat vond ik een deprimerende gedachte, ook al werd dat enigszins verzacht door mijn overtuiging dat elke onomstotelijk geachte waarheid over dit onderwerp[ uiteindelijk toch wordt weerlegd.
En trouwens, de aarde is niet plat. Er zijn overal muren. Als dat niet zo was, waren we weggebleven uit Irak, waar iedereen, niet alleen Tom Friedman, zijn hand overspeeld heeft.
