A whopping big celebration of the work of the late, great Nora Ephron, Americaâ€™s funniestâ€”and most acuteâ€”writer, famous for her brilliant takes on life as weâ€™ve been living it these last forty years.
Everything you could possibly want from Nora Ephron is hereâ€”from her writings on journalism, feminism, and being a woman (the notorious piece on being flat-chested, the clarion call of her commencement address at Wellesley) to her best-selling novel, Heartburn, written in the wake of her devastating divorce from Carl Bernstein; from her hilarious and touching screenplay for the movie When Harry Met Sally . . . (â€œIâ€™ll have what sheâ€™s havingâ€) to her recent play Lucky Guy (published here for the first time); from her ongoing love affair with food, recipes and all, to her extended takes on such controversial women as Lillian Hellman and Helen Gurley Brown; from her pithy blogs on politics to her moving meditations on aging (â€œI Feel Bad About My Neckâ€) and dying.
Her superb writing, her unforgettable movies, her honesty and fearlessness, her nonpareil humor have made Nora Ephron an icon for Americaâ€™s womenâ€”and not a few of its men.
