The Most of Nora Ephron
In 2012 the world lost a great artist, Nora Ephron. The Most of Nora Ephron offers the reader a comprehensive sampling of the various literary forms Ephron mastered throughout her career. This posthumous collection is divided into 9 parts which showcase each of her writing pursuits. Among them: journalist, novelist, screenwriter, and blogger. Ephron was all of these things—wearing many hats while staying true to her hilarious and candid nature. The pieces her editor and friend Robert Gottlieb selected for this volume allow you to witness the sublime arc of her life and career in one place. From her early essays as a magazine journalist in the 1970s to her recent blog pieces from the Huffington Post, Ephron’s personality bursts through every page with sardonic wit and unapologetic truth. Her screenwriting devotees will find both the screenplay for When Harry Met Sally as well as the complete Heartburn novel in this collection. For any writer or fan who ever considered stopping short of their goals, Ephron’s career is a testament to keep going while laughing at every stumble and setback. Never one to take herself too seriously, Ephron still remains a journalist at heart, a witness to the world around us, both personally and politically.
