Publisher's Summary

Two classic collections of Nora Ephron’s uproarious essays - tackling everything from feminism to the media, from politics to beauty products, with her inimitable charm and distinctive wit - now available in one audiobook for the first time.
This edition brings together some of Ephron’s most famous writing on a generation of women (and men) who helped shape the way we live now, and on events ranging from the Watergate scandal to the Pillsbury Bake-Off. In these sharp, hilariously entertaining, and vividly observed pieces, Ephron illuminates an era with wicked honesty and insight. From the famous "A Few Words About Breasts" to important pieces on her time working for the New York Post and Gourmet Magazine, these essays show Ephron at her very best.

too bad

Sadly, this book bored me stiff--as outdated gossips usually do.
(I recommend buying Ephron's other books/audiobooks)--Reader does a good job of imitating Ephron's voice, tone and style, but I am not sure that was necessary at all.

Wanted to love this...but...

If you are of the same generation as Nora, you will relate to the stories better than I. I wanted to love this book. I was hoping for some wisdom on aging in that Nora Ephron wit of her screen plays. The stories are like a comentary on the events of the times in which she was living through, many read out like a diary entry. The narnators voice is a good fit for the author, so it is like you are hearing the author read her stories. This book is long if you don't or can't relate to the stories. For example the storie about returning to Wellesley... was a bit of a 'you had to be there'. Unfortunately I could not finish this book as I lost interest.

Would you listen to Crazy Salad and Scribble, Scribble again? Why?

Yes, in a couple of years. It was a fascinating insight into life at the time of writing the book. A great variety of topics covered, some of which I spent time researching after hearing about them for the first time.

Love it

As a child of the 60s born the year after Kennedy was assassinated, these articles are full of the things that went on around me as a child. The early profile of Gloria Steinem and other pivotal figures in the early days of women's liberation are fascinating. It would be great if the anti feminist millennials would read this and pull their heads in. Ephron doesn't shy away from the complex issues, but her acknowledgement makes them seem much less threatening. A great double bill. Just fabulous.
