In Sister Mother Husband Dog, Delia Ephron brings her trademark wit and effervescent prose to a series of autobiographical essays about life, love, writing, movies, and family. In “Sister,” she deftly captures the rivalry, mutual respect, and intimacy that made up her relationship with her older sister and frequent writing companion, Nora. “Blame It on the Movies” is Ephron’s wry and romantic essay about becoming a writer and finding a storybook ending to her twenties, though it was just the beginning of a lifetime of taking notes. “Bakeries” is both a lighthearted tour through her favorite downtown patisseries and a thoughtful, deeply felt reflection on the dilemma of “having it all.” From keen observations on modern living, the joy of girlfriends, and best-friendship, to a consideration of the magical madness and miracle of dogs, to haunting recollections of life with her famed screenwriter mother and growing up the child of alcoholics, Ephron’s eloquent style and voice illuminate every moment of this superb and singular work.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ephron writes openly and deeply about powerful loss, and hilariously about the small and large absurdities of all our lives. With this amazing, inclusive collection, she doesn’t miss a thing.” Meg Wolitzer, New York Times bestselling author of The Interestings
“I devoured Delia’s deliciously wonderful memoir in one-and-a-half sittings. All praise to her for these self-honest and hilarious stories of love, life, and the healing power of girlfriends, doggies, and bakery items.” Jane Lynch, actress and New York Times bestselling author of Happy Accidents
“Wonderful…Ephron remains our most radiant observer of the hidden places of the heart.” Marie Brenner, author of Apples and Oranges
