Description
Opening with her introduction to her 1970 collection of essays Wallflower at the Orgy, and closing with "What I Won't Miss" and "What I Will Miss," two pieces from her 2010 book I Remember Nothing, this anthology is a celebration of Nora Ephron's sparky humor and acute insight—a portrait of the late writer through some of her most enduring work. Here are pieces on journalism, feminism, and being a woman, including her notorious piece on being flat-chested, and the clarion call of her commencement address at Wellesley. Here too are three complete works: Heartburn, the novel she wrote in the wake of her divorce from Carl Bernstein; the screenplay for the movie When Harry Met Sally...; and her Tony-nominated play Lucky Guy. Ephron includes her extended takes on such controversial women as Lillian Hellman and Helen Gurley Brown, her pithy Huffington Post blogs on politics, and moving meditations on aging like "I Feel Bad About My Neck" and "The O Word."

"The book's most delicious offering is Ephron's magazine journalism from the 1970s, with razor-sharp profiles of figures such as Helen Gurley Brown, Dorothy Schiff, and Julie Nixon Eisenhower, and keenly intelligent reportage on subjects that include the 1971 National Women's Political Caucus and the 1973 Pillsbury Bake-off competition. From Ephron's days as a reporter at Newsweek in the 1960s to blogging for the Huffington Post in the 2000s, the book documents the changing culture of the New York media world. Everything is copy, Ephron's mother always said. This collection fulfills that motto with aplomb, and will likely serve as a perfect holiday gift for Ephron fans."—Publishers Weekly
