Review quote

What really interested Ephron, for all her clever writing about food, politics and overcluttered purses, were matters of the heart ... She is wit without cynicism, the ultimate romantic. * New York Times * A big, gratifying collection . . . the work of a brilliant woman. * Los Angeles Times * 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 * 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. * Entertainment Weekly *
