1. In What I Wish I'd Known, Ephron lists things she wishes she had known when she was younger. Were there any entries that were particularly resonant for you? Which ones, and why? Is there anything that Ephron left off that you would like to add? Would your list look similar to hers?
2. Ephron's essays are filled with the humourous anecdotes regarding "maintenance." However there is an edge to this humor. What comment do you think she is making about the place of "women of a certain age" in society?
3. Ephron presents some life questions: Should you live everyday as if it's your last or should you save money on the chance you'll live twenty more years? Is life too short or is it going to be too long? Should you work as hard as you can or should you slow down to smell the roses?
What life questions do you have?
