Review: Crazy Salad: Some Things About Women (Modern Library Humor and Wit)

User Review  - Goodreads

Ephron's writing is funny and charming and fast, as always. I didn't get into this because it relied heavily on knowing the who's who of the 70s and the 80s, especially politicians. Read full review

User Review  - Goodreads

I tried to get into it, I just couldn't. I liked some chapters, skipped some, just ok at best. Maybe it was because my copy smelled musty and old or maybe because it's no longer 1975. Read full review
