- Author Nora Ephron
I really enjoyed this collection of writings from the wonderful Nora Ephron, as they cover a variety of topics from aging and death, to the wonders of living in New York City. The pieces vary in length and subject matter but all have that warm, open and frank feeling that you are being told home truths in a very direct but also somehow comforting fashion.
I don’t relate to everything Nora talks about, not being over sixty nor living in the city, but even with that, she brings you into her world almost instantly and you get it - it’s not so much about the who, what and where, but more about the human spirit, and that’s what makes it so lovely.
It’s only a short read, and I was certainly left wanting more, but I was equally uplifted by the writing, just to know that other people think the same things you do. Even when the subjects are on the more morbid side, still, the author still somehow finds a way to make you feel a bit better.
