Publisher's Summary

Nora Ephron returns with her first book since the astounding success of I Feel Bad About My Neck, taking a cold, hard, hilarious look at the past, the present, and the future, bemoaning the vicissitudes of modern life, and recalling with her signature clarity and wisdom everything she hasn’t (yet) forgotten.
Even as she’s listing “What I Won’t Miss” and “What I Will Miss” - making the final tally - Ephron reaches back to recount falling hard for a way of life (“Journalism: A Love Story”) and breaking up even harder with the men in her life (“The D Word”), a long-anticipated inheritance with entirely unanticipated results (“My Life as an Heiress”), and the evolution, a decade after she wrote and directed You’ve Got Mail, of her relationship with her in-box (“The Six Stages of E- mail”). All the while, she gives candid, charming voice to everything women who have reached a certain age have been thinking... but have rarely acknowledged.
Filled with insights and observations that instantly ring true - and could have come only from Nora Ephron - I Remember Nothing is a pure delight.

Ha ha

I am so tired of publishers claiming that a book is hilarious. This one is not hilarious, but is much more. Whenever I am exposed to Nora Ephron, I am entertained by the way her mind works and the way she can express life’s nuances – sometimes saying just what I would have said if I were brilliant. I enjoy her juxtapositions: opinionated self-doubt, funny terror. I always gain a couple of insights into myself and the way people work. I really enjoyed this read. And, like I Hate My Neck, it seeds in just enough reality to make one’s heart stop.

A find line

I highly recommend this audiobook. One of my favorite movies is the 1990 comedy, ???My Blue Heaven,??? screenplay by Nora Ephron, directed by Herbert Ross, and starring Steve Martin, Rick Moranis, and Joan Cusack. The title of this inspired movie was taken from the old Fats Domino song by the same name. You probably heard that Ephron died of leukemia on June 26. Her death at seventy-one surprised even her friends.
When a celebrity dies, friends, family, or acquaintances appear, saying obligatory positive things about the deceased. Who pays attention to obligatory utterances? It???s the body of work left behind that matters. Besides my favorite movie, Ephron wrote: When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, You???ve Got Mail, Julie and Julia, other movies, books, and even a play, which she considered her best writing. Still, a television interview of a friend and several columns by journalists who mentioned knowing her intrigued me, and created the impression that Ephron didn???t prepare people for her death. One columnist, who never writes a sentimental word, as far as I can tell, wrote about riding in a cab in Texas, the day after Ephron died. The cab driver swerved to avoid an accident, throwing the columnist into the back of the front seat, and she burst into tears, scaring the bejeebers out of the cab driver. The physical jolt released a flood of grief. What kind of woman is known for being a great friend adored by many, including hard-nosed journalists, but allots no time for saying good-bye? I was skeptical, and wanted to know more. Did I say I???m a psychologist?
Unfamiliar with Ephron???s essays and books, I decided to search for something to read, but picked an audio version of I Remember Nothing. Great decision on my part because Ephron reads it. The material is funny and the delivery is perfect. She discusses aging, family relationships, friendships, divorce, work, lists of things she liked and didn???t like, people (neither Tom Friedman nor Larry King come out ahead), successes and failures, food, and more.
Nora Ephron loved being a journalist and this book is a credit to the field. She mastered the art of including facts about flawed people, aren???t we all, that humanized them without ridicule. Her mother became an alcoholic when Ephron was fifteen. It???s so easy to trash a parent, and so not the thing to do. She tiptoed along a very fine line and captured the best and worst of her mother, with a detachment that allows the listener to hear without cringing. This book is devoid of bitterness and filled with insight. Her philosophy was ???get over it.??? Maybe this audio book was her way of saying good-bye.

A memoir from a great cultural figure

Where does I Remember Nothing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best memoirs I've listened to.

What about Nora Ephron’s performance did you like?

It's so nice to hear this spoken by Norah Ephron herself. I wish there were more.

Wit and punky advice from Nora

Would you consider the audio edition of I Remember Nothing to be better than the print version?

Because this is spoken by Nora herself you really feel engulfed in her very funny company. I couldnt imagine reading this book now. I felt bereft when it ended and I found out she had passed away so this book is a one off.

Laugh out loud

Would you listen to I Remember Nothing again? Why?

I have listened to this book about 7 or 8 times

What about Nora Ephron’s performance did you like?

Nora always makes me feel she is sitting across the table, it feels as though we are friends

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not necessarily but can hardly stop myself

Any additional comments?

I am sad there won't be any more

Love Nora so much

Get this one if you love Nora Ephron. She reads it herself. Some of the later pieces will bring tears to your eyes knowing she only survived 2 years after this was made. A very funny woman. A great loss. Her observations are filled with her wit, her compassion, and her stunning sense of the ridiculous. Loved it.
