Editorial Reviews

A brilliant, restless mind. Ms.
As tart and refreshing as the first gin and tonic of summer. The New York Times Book Review
Stylish, opinionated, with a kind of take-no-prisoners fearlessness rooted in both the women’s movement and the equally complex terrain of her own emotions Los Angeles Times
Funny, shrewd, devastating. Newsweek
Nora Ephron is, in essence, one of the original bloggers—and if everyone could write like her, what a lovely place the Internet would be. . . . telling stories that were, more often than not, ultimately about herself, and doing so with such warmth, wit and skill that they became universal. The Seattle Times 
Pure delight. Playboy
Always funny. Mademoiselle
Nora Ephron can write about anything better than anybody else can write about anything. The New York Times
Witty whiplash prose—a delight to read. Publishers Weekly
“A woman for all seasons, tender and tough in just the right proportions.” New York Times
A tremendously talented woman from a significant American period. . . . tremendous talent is her forte, her strong suit, her fiendish trump card. The Washington Post 
A woman for all seasons, tender and tough in just the right proportions. The New York Times
Truly funny and wonderfully wise. Chicago Tribune
“A tremendously talented woman from a significant American period…Tremendous talent is her forte, her strong suit, her fiendish trump card.” Washington Post
