Review quote

A woman for all seasons, tender and tough in just the right proportions. The 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 Truly funny and wonderfully wise. Chicago Tribune Witty whiplash prose a delight to read. Publishers Weekly Nora Ephron can write about anything better than anybody else can write about anything. The New York Times 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 As tart and refreshing as the first gin and tonic of summer. The New York Times Book Review A brilliant, restless mind. Ms. 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 Always funny. Mademoiselle Pure delight. Playboy"show more
