Nora Ephron was many things: journalist, screenwriter, an Academy Award nominee, a playwright, novelist, blogger, and an advocate for women. Most important, she seemed like your best friend and confidante—your homegirl. Now, finally, some of her best writing is collected in one volume. The Most of Nora Ephron (Knopf, $35) includes journalism, the screenplay of When Harry Met Sally, the novel, Heartburn, posts from Ephron’s food blog, and more. Reading this book gave me goose bumps and made me sad for a world where Nora is no longer; her films remain some of my favorites, and reading this collection felt like a parting gift from one of the funniest ladies in showbiz. Before her death, Nora stipulated that this collection never be turned into an e-book—making her not only a girl’s best friend, but a bookseller’s as well.
