I had to reread this before sending it to the library book sale. I cannot, of course, get rid of it without rereading it first. Clearing some space on my shelves is going to take awhile. I enjoy Ephron's writing, though I'll probably (reread and then) get rid of Heartburn, too. The columns collecte...

A fantastically cutting read. Such a clever narrative tone with a real voice to back it up! Hilariously honest, Nora Ephron held no prisoners.

A good amount of this book felt over my head, given that much of what was discussed was from the '70's and '80's. However I still appreciated it for what it was and enjoyed getting a window into what was of importance to Ephron and many others during that time.

Just downright great writing. The insights about journalism and Watergate and/or journalism and celebrity, seen through today's filters are fascinating too.

A compilation of writing about various issues in the media, which Ephron admits was designed partly to return her writing to the front of ‘Esquire’. She writes about contemporary issues such as the journalistic failure of the New York Post or the new, dumb magazine, People. She examines a number...

The perfect rating for this book would be about 3 and 1/2 stars. I really enjoyed these essays - as I have enjoyed all of Ephron's essays that I've read. The only reason for the slightly lower rating is that so many of the essays were so topical and unique to life in the 1970s that I simply didn'...

As usual Nora is a great writer. This was a collection of columns, most of which were published in Esquire magazine, about journalism and the media. My biggest problem with the book was that 1) it was pretty insiderish (okay I think I made that word up) about the media industry and 2) it was pret...

If anyone else had written this, I'd probably be giving it three stars. Some of the pieces are so out-of-date (understandably, given the book is even older than I am) as to be almost incomprehensible. But this is Nora, and I love her writing so much that I can overlook the odd essay that bored or...

These essays are a collection of newspaper columns written by Ephron in the 1970s, and as one reviewer put it, they are a tough read if you don't happen to be living in New York in the 1970s. It's an unfair critique, but because she is so often commenting on small (or large) scandals that occurre...

Collects Ephron's column on the media from Esquire, including one piece they rejected (it was about them). Not as in-depth as the articles in her first two books, I think owing more to what space she had than anything else. Two articles are stylistically extra-interesting; she couches one profile...
