Bize "Seattle'da Uykusuzluk" ve "Harry Sally ile Tanışınca" adlı ünlü senaristin oynadığı mizahi bir kadın gösterisini izleyeceğinizi düşünün. Bu sesli kitabı dinlemek böyle bir şeydi. Ephron, yüzeyselden (43 yaşın üzerindeki tüm kadınları etkileyen sarkma veya başka şekilde çarpıtılmış boyun problemi gibi) kalp kırılmasına (kaçınılmaz ölüm gerçeği) kadar yaşlanma süreci üzerinde umutsuzlukla başlar ve biter. Arasında, okuma, New York City ve yemek sevgisini paylaşıyor. (Şimdi neden yönetmeyi seçtiğini söyleyebilirim "Julie ve Julia - hevesli bir aşçı, Julia Child, Craig Claiborne ve Lee Bailey'nin geçmişteki hayranlığını paylaşıyor.) Ephron komik ve çocukluğundan başlayıp devam eden birçok ilginç hikayesi var 3 evlilik, çeşitli kariyer değişiklikleri, 2 büyük şehir (NYC ve Washington DC), 3 çocuk ve birçok farklı kanepe ve daireden ... En sevdiğim hikayeler onun yemek ve okuma sevgisiyle ilgili olanlardı, çünkü gerçekten bunlarla ilgiliydim. ... öğle yemeğini sevmeyi sevdiğiniz türden bir hanımefendi.

Mejoro después del tercero. Me encantaron los viajes, formé parte de su recorrido y también de lo que allí vivió. Creo que no le doy las 5 estrellas porque a veces sentía que perdía el ritmo.

I've always thought of this as his worst book (I still haven't read Hey Rube). I liked it better the second time around, I think partially because I had such low expectations. In fact, having just reread all four volumes of the Gonzo Papers, I'd put this one ahead of Generation of Swine, which is a collection of nothing but San Francisco Examiner columns. I think the problem with both books is that for the most part he doesn't go anywhere. I mean actually, physically go anywhere. He is always funny (though often the humor is repetitive) but the vitality of his writing comes from the sense that he's there in the thick of the action and constantly on the verge of a total savage meltdown. One of the joys of Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail was the adrenaline filled sense that he was constantly in high crisis mode, usually a crisis manufactured by his own desperate behavior. Generation of Swine almost captured this a few times (the Florida smuggling sequence, for example), but the excitement was muzzled by the two and a half page newspaper column format. In Better than Sex, he also seems insane and near to losing it, but mainly from the comfort of the Woody Creek bunker, which hardly creates a sense of danger and excitement. At times, shooting off nutty faxes to various players in the '92 presidential campaign, he comes off as a paranoid megalomaniacal shut-in with a delusional sense of his own political significance. Not a fun way to perceive one of one's favorite authors, whose fine high-wire act of outré behavior and sharp political insight created one of the greatest books on politics ever in 1972. Edited to add: Despite all of this, I still found the book hilarious and enjoyed reading it. I'm just not sure it achieved anything of great value beyond a little entertainment. Hell, PJ O'Rourke could've written a book at this level, and to me, he is the superficial (and conservative) version of HST.
