"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’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’s women--and not a few of its men"-- Provided by publisher.

She is just a terrific writer and this book has so many of her excellent pieces. I especially liked the movie script "When Harry Met Sally." Also included was the script of the B'way play, "Lucky Guy."
