really liked it

I want to have drinks with Nora Ephron. I also apparently want to lie around pretending I was alive in '67 and that I get references to Jacquelin Sussan. This book is pop culture Americana at its finest, and Nora is a great narrator. I enjoyed this much more than Heartburn (which was still fine). Perhaps the most wonderful thing about it is that it's fine journalism by a writer who'd let you think she just happened to get lucky and get paid to write. She's brilliant and insightful and just self-deprecating enough to admit her shallowness and then roll around in it for our high entertainment.
