Nora Ephron

Nora Ephron had wat je een rijk gevuld leven zou kunnen noemen. Ze was een stagiaire in het Witte Huis ('ik ben vermoedelijk de enige jonge vrouw die ooit in het Witte Huis heeft gewerkt die Kennedy niet geprobeerd heeft te versieren'), maar ze is vooral bekend geworden als schrijfster van films alsYou've Got Mail,When Harry met SallyenSleepless in Seattle. De lezer vanWat baal ik van mijn halszal de even warme als scherpe humor uit deze films onmiddellijk herkennen.Op 26 juni 2012 overleed Ephron op 71-jarige leeftijd.

Samenvatting

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.

Recensie(s)

When she died in 2012, the public outpouring made clear how vastly popular she had become,and the great cheerful tome that is The MOST of Nora Ephron looks nothing if not confident of its mass appeal. The Times Literary Supplement A good reminder of some of the strengths of her remarkable career...for all her clever writing about food, politics and overcluttered purses...(she was) the ultimate romantic. -- Gail Collins New York Times A big, gratifying collection ... the work of a brilliant woman. Los Angeles Times In her incomparable and characteristically unregretful voice, Ephron makes acute observations on each page of this delicious compilation. Daily Mail Hugely entertaining...What made Ephron great was that she took the very things seriously that others dismissed as frivolous, Cosmopolitan, Teflon, breast size, and, most of all, herself.
