New Book Giveaway!

This week, I’m giving away the hilarious and moving I Feel Bad About My Neck by the equally hilarious (and moving) Nora Ephron. Let me just come right out and say that I pretty much worship Nora Ephron. Why? Because she’s clever, quick, insightful, honest, hilarious (did I already say that?) and she’s a total foodie (think Heartburn).

Despite my Nora-worshipping ways, it took me until this summer to pick up I Feel Bad About My Neck. What makes this even stranger is that I, too, feel bad about my neck. Not because it’s loose and saggy (though I’m sure that’s coming) but because of the wrap-around scar that starts at my right collar bone, stretches all the way across to my left and then continues traveling upward until it meets my left ear. As far as scars go, it’s a doozy. The result of an operation to remove my thyroid way back when I was 23, my scar is now as much a part of me as my squinty eyes or my half-curly, half-straight hair. Though I’ve long since abandoned my uniform of all turtlenecks, all the time (thank goodness for that), I do still cringe when a stranger asks “what happened there,” accompanied by a throat-slashing motion. But as long as my six-year-old daughters continue to think my scar looks “cool,” how upset can I really be?

    This book sounds really funny – I’ve got scars in the shape of a very large cross on my stomach from 3 surgeries (thank goodness they saved my belly button), and while I find that most people don’t even notice them, I know they’re there and am sometimes thinking that everyone sees them.
