Nora Ephron:  A unique writing talent who put into words and movies what so many women think about life and love.  We will miss you.

Nora Ephron died Tuesday, June 26th.  This link has some of her best lines.  My favorite book is Heartburn, funny, yet sad about her husband's affair. It was fictionalized, but the main characters were obvious.  Her ex- husband was Carl Bernstein, of Watergate fame.

Favorite Ephron Movies or books?


  1. i would have to say "sleepless in Seattle"--she was great

  2. Good movies are like good books, you remember them long after you have seen them or read them. I am awarding you the faithful commenter (is this a word?) award, Lynn. Thank you! Natalie

  3. I've only seen a handful of the movies she wrote screenplays for and haven't read anything by her, but I know of her name and her influence.

    I was a sucker for Sleepless in Seattle.

    Tossing It Out

  4. Me too, Lee. The Tom Hanks character who was mourning his wife was so heart-rending. The screen play was perfect.
