Fifteen essays written by the wonderful Nora Ephron about what it’s like to be a woman over 60 are funny, sweet, sad, distressing, and dead honest. Ephron reads the way she writes—with a wry, witty candor that is engaging. It’s a little like talking to a friend who won’t let you lie to yourself about your aging body and the forces of gravity. In time, everything sags. With spirit and intelligence, Ephron’s conversational tone keeps heads nodding and grins widening as she recalls her attempts at solutions to pre- and post-menopausal problems. She deals with hair dyes, skin creams, manicures, and pedicures, but by the book’s conclusion she finally declares what most women of a certain age know anyway: Trying to stop the clock simply doesn’t work.
