PDF Nora Ephron é Crazy Salad Some Things About Women Epub Ø Crazy é

The classic Crazy Salad by screenwriting legend and novelist Nora Ephron is an extremely funny deceptively light look at a generation of women and men who helped shape the way we live now In this distinctive engaging and simply hilarious view of a period of great upheaval in America Ephron turns her keen eye and wonderful sense of humor to the media politics beauty products and women's bodies In the famous A Few Words About Breasts for example she tells us If I had had them I would have been a completely different person I honestly believe that Ephron brings her sharp pen to bear on the notable women of the time and to a series of events ranging from Watergate to the Pillsbury Bake Off When it first appeared in 1975 Crazy Salad helped to illuminate a new American era—and helped us to laugh at our times and ourselves This new edition will delight a fresh generation of readersContentsA few words about breasts Fantasies On never having been a prom queen The girls in the office Reunion Miami Vaginal politics Bernice Gera first lady umpire Deep throat On consciousness raising Dealing with the uh problem The hurled ashtray Truth and consequences Baking off Crazy ladies I The pig Dorothy Parker A star is born Women in Israel The myth of liberation The littlest Nixon Divorce Maryland style Rose Mary Woods the lady or the tiger? No but I read the book Crazy ladies II Conundrum Portions of this book have appeared in Esquire magazine New York magazine and Rolling Stone

    Nora Ephron 1941 2012 is famous for her screenplays Silkwood When Harry Met Sally and films Sleepless In Seattle Julie Julia but I've always loved her for her proseShe started out as a journalist and this collection of essays about women published in magazines like Esquire and New York in the early 1970s contains lots of gems some are funny some are deadly serious and all of them are clear eyed intelligent and written in her signature conversational styleThe collection begins with one of Ephron's classics the candid and very funny A Few Words About Breasts in which she chronicles a lifetime of being flat chested The piece is chatty and full of anecdotes but there's pain and anger simmering beneath the writing including the final four letter word which would have been shocking in a general interest magazine in 1972 The tone of the piece reminds me of one of my favourite passages from her novel HeartburnVera said “Why do you feel you have to turn everything into a story?” So I told her whyBecause if I tell the story I control the versionBecause if I tell the story I can make you laugh and I would rather have you laugh at me than feel sorry for meIn other essays Ephron attends the tenth reunion of her 1962 Wellesley College graduating class she reports on the historic National Women's Political Caucus at the Democratic Convention full of big clashing personalities like Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem she writes about attending the mainstream porn film Deep Throat she is a hilarious fly on the oven wall at the Pillsbury Bake Off she weighs in on the infamous battle of the sexes Bobby Riggs vs Margaret Court tennis match she deconstructs the myth of Dorothy Parker and tells us not surprisingly that she always wanted to be like legendary wit Although many of the essay subjects might seem like obscure footnotes today Ephron's writing is so good you'll be engrossed about everything from consciousness raising about which she is understandably skeptical to minor Watergate figures One of my favourite articles is a profile of Bernice Gera who was the first female umpire in professional baseball but quit on the very first day she began The way Ephron describes her Bronx apartment full of baseball paraphernalia and the horrific sexist behaviour she endured is masterful and very moving And a long article about the marketing of feminine hygiene spray is a disturbing yet eye opening look at Madison Ave's view of womenUnfortunately the book ends on a sour note as Ephron reviews a book by Jan Morris who was born James Morris The world has come a long way in terms of acceptance of trans issues and it's sad that Ephron's review is full of cheap shots and unfunny jokesThat said this entire book is a fascinating time capsule How sad that Ephron's no longer alive to weigh in on some of the big issues affecting women and men – and non binary people – today
