I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron
Nora Ephron has certain misgivings about being in her sixties. I Feel Bad About My Neck is a collection of the essays from the author and screenwriter, some about her past, but most of them concerned about trying to deal with the inexorable progression of age. She notes that applications of lotions and creams and makeup can help fight the effects of age on the face and elsewhere, but nothing short of surgery can help with the neck, which is why many older women prefer to wear turtlenecks. Using humor and wit, she confronts the new issues that surround her life. Many of the essays were previously published in various periodicals, and they're all collected here in one place. I Feel Bad About My Neck has received mixed reviews with the New York Observer saying, "This is a book about age and regret. Since it's by Nora Ephron, it's funny. A funny book about loss is a puzzle, and it's that puzzle that I, if not the author, tussle with in reading this delightful, maddening collection of personal essays whose wit is sublime and whose concerns are sometimes reduced to the ridiculous."
