Summary, etc.:
"A whopping big celebration of the work of the late, great Nora Ephron, America's funniest--and most acute--writer, famous for her brilliant takes on life as we've been living it these last forty years. Everything you could possibly want from Nora Ephron is here--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 ("I'll have what she<U+2019>s having") 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 ("I Feel Bad About My Neck") and dying. Her superb writing, her unforgettable movies, her honesty and fearlessness, her nonpareil humor have made Nora Ephron an icon for America<U+2019>s women--and not a few of its men"--Provided by publisher.
"Nora Ephron (1941<U+2013>2012) was an exceptionally smart, funny, and caring journalist, essayist, novelist, playwright, screenwriter, blogger, producer, and director. Her last two books, I Remember Nothing and Other Reflections (2010) and I Feel Bad about My Neck (2006), were best-sellers; her films include Silkwood, Sleepless in Seattle, You<U+2019>ve Got Mail, and Julie & Julia. No matter how versed in Ephron's cherished work a reader may be, she or he will be dazzled and touched anew by this life-spanning, life-embracing collection that so richly showcases her clarity, brio, and candor. Mining her own intriguing life in Beverly Hills and New York, Ephron wrote about what it means to be female, from her hilarious "A Few Words about Breasts" in 1972 to her touched-a-nerve laments about marriage, motherhood, age, and persistent sexism. A canny interpreter of the zeitgeist, Ephron threshed topics social, cultural, and political, and shared her passion for food. Nearly 80 stellar essays are accompanied by Ephron's novel, Heartburn; her play, Lucky Guy, and her acclaimed, oft-quoted screenplay for When Harry Met Sally. Ephron's bereft readership will embrace this robust, strongly promoted tribute to her incandescent talent and intensely creative life.--Donna Seaman''--Booklist.
