Description

Essays. Literary Criticism. Nonfiction. Humor (Nonfiction.) HTML: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.    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.
