Nora Ephron (1941-2012) was an American journalist, writer, and filmmaker. She wrote and directed a number of films including When Harry Met Sally, Silkwood, and Sleepless in Seattle. Ephron’s off-screen writing is not as widely known, but certainly should be. Ephron wrote one novel, Heartburn, as well as collections of memoir-style essays, such as I Feel Bad About My Neck. Being funny did not prevent her from approaching difficult topics; Heartburn has been mentioned in interviews here for ‘The Best Books on Coping With Failure’ and ‘The Best Books on Depression’. Nora Ephron passed away from cancer in 2012.
