Audible Editor Reviews

The late Nora Ephorn was one of the funniest writers in the history of the romantic comedy and personal memoir. Arianna Huffington is a self-made media mogul and frequent columnist. Gail Saltz is a professor of psychiatry and frequent sex and advice contributor to many forums. These are three very successful women.
A few years ago, they got together at the acclaimed 92nd Street Y in New York City to discuss aging, work, love, biography, and the pursuit of success. This breezy listen is filled with gems, including Ephron’s quip that her mother successfully raised "four kids who were all able to pay for their own psychoanalysis". This audiobook is like a brainier The View.

Loving the conversations

Any additional comments?

I enjoy the idea of listening to two strong women in conversation. Ephron I'd already fallen in love with, particularly her set of essays in Crazy Salad, though her other books, both as audio or on the page, are amazing. Huffington I managed to not know a great deal about, which is interesting given how much her journal pops into my Facebook feed. I'm grateful to these women, who are bold and honest, and I'm also glad that Ephron doesn't really care about shoes. And that two powerful women can forge a friendship that people want to listen to stories about.

Nora Ephron & Friend: Reflections On Being A Woman

This interview is worth a listen, if only for Nora Ephron's frank observations on sex (people who claim it's better than ever after fifty are lying), marriage, motherhood, aging, plastic surgery (she judges no one, either for altering themselves surgically or failing to do so), work, travel, food, weight, and other preoccupations common to women. Neo-Liberal and former conservative Arianna Huffington is surprisingly interesting as well, with some surprising observations and controversial opinions. It turns out these two women are friends with a history, which is briefly explained at the start of the program.

This is a very short program, so don't waste a credit on it; purchase only if on sale for under $1-2.00.
