Author(s): Nora Ephron
If there is any solace in growing older, it is that you will find yourself guffawing in hysterical recognition at the situations Nora Ephron describes, from the impossibility of trying to remember people's names at parties,to struggling with the new technology.
You will find yourself rolling off the sofa snorting with laughter as she recalls with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn't (yet) forgotten - and you will swallow down a lump in your throat at the poignancy of her insights into the pain and guilt of separation and divorce.
One thing is for sure, there is nobody else who can put her finger so very precisely, so beguilingly and with so much wit, on the things we all feel and struggle with in our journey into middle age and beyond.
