A few good stories in here but overall felt a little dated in terms of subjects in the various pieces.
What disappointed you about Wallflower at the Orgy?
I had higher expectations for this book and so I am disappointed. I don't find her writing has anything with wit or punch. I also found the material to be dated.
What was most disappointing about Nora Ephron’s story?
Nora Ephron not a favorite of mine as I now know from trying this audiobook. I gave up about half way through.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Narration was fine. I found the content lacking.
Any additional comments?
I won't be bothering with Nora Ephron again.

Would you consider the audio edition of Wallflower at the Orgy to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version
What did you like best about this story?
Very articulate and funny. Lots of interesting subjects too
Have you listened to any of Kathe Mazur’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
These early magazine articles aren't earth shattering, but Ephron knows that and tells you in the preface. They are of their time and a precursor of the quick wit and razor sharp style of the more mature woman. Make sure you get "Crazy Salad and Scribble, Scribble", as it's full of the more mature Ephron's work, and fascinating insight into the early days of Women's Liberation.
