Nora Ephron famously claimed that she wrote about every thought that ever crossed her mind, from her divorce from Carl Bernstein (Heartburn) to the size of her breasts ("A Few Words About Breasts"). She also wrote screenplays for three of the most successful contemporary romantic comedies--When Harry Met Sally (1989), Sleepless in Seattle (1993) and You've Got Mail (1998). Often considered mere light-hearted romantic comedies, her screenwriting has not been the subject of serious study. This book offers a sustained critical analysis of her work and life and demonstrates that Ephron is no lightweight. The complexity of her work is explored through the context of her childhood in a deeply dysfunctional family of writers.

A backstage look at the making of Nora Ephron's revered trilogy--When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail, and Sleepless in Seattle--which brought romantic comedies back to the fore, and an intimate portrait of the beloved writer/director who inspired a generation of Hollywood women, from Mindy Kaling to Lena Dunham. In I'll Have What She's Having entertainment journalist Erin Carlson tells the story of the real Nora Ephron and how she reinvented the romcom through her trio of instant classics. With a cast of famous faces including Rob Reiner, Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, and Billy Crystal, Carlson takes readers on a rollicking, revelatory trip to Ephron's New York City, where reality took a backseat to romance and Ephron--who always knew what she wanted and how she wanted it--ruled the set with an attention to detail that made her actors feel safe but sometimes exasperated crew members. Along the way, Carlson examines how Ephron explored in the cinema answers to the questions that plagued her own romantic life and how she regained faith in love after one broken engagement and two failed marriages. Carlson also explores countless other questions Ephron's fans have wondered about: What sparked Reiner to snap out of his bachelor blues during the making of When Harry Met Sally? Why was Ryan, a gifted comedian trapped in the body of a fairytale princess, not the first choice for the role? After she and Hanks each separatel balked at playing Mail's Kathleen Kelly and Sleepless' Sam Baldwin, what changed their minds? And perhaps most importantly: What was Dave Chappelle doing ... in a turtleneck? An intimate portrait of a one of America's most iconic filmmakers and a look behind the scenes of her crowning achievements, I'll Have What She's Having is a vivid account of the days and nights when Ephron, along with assorted cynical collaborators, learned to show her heart on the screen.

Dieses Buch geht uns alle an! Wenn man jung ist, lacht man darüber, dass man in die Küche gegangen ist und sich nicht mehr daran erinnert, was man dort wollte. Oder dass man sorgfältig eine Einkaufsliste geschrieben und sie dann aber vergessen hat. Und dann wird man älter ... Früher drohten die vielen Erinnerungen ihre „geistige Festplatte“ zu sprengen; beim Älterwerden spürt Nora Ephron, dass die Speicher sich zu leeren beginnen. Und diese Erfahrung machen wir irgendwann alle. Mit viel Wortwitz zeigt Hollywoods erfolgreichste Drehbuchautorin einmal mehr, wie gut sie es versteht, die Gedanken und Wünsche von Frauen in Worte zu fassen. Mit unnachahmlicher Selbstironie schreibt sie über gestern, heute und morgen, über Familie und Beruf, Vertrauen und Enttäuschung, Erfolg und Desaster. Der Hals lügt immer noch nie. Und Nora Ephron lügt uns nicht an: Altwerden ist nicht einfach, aber einfach schön verrückt! Herzenswärme und hintergründiger Humor von Hollywoods Kultautorin. Nora Ephron weiß, was Frauen wollen!

'I have bought more copies of this book to give to people, in a frenzy of enthusiasm, than any other . . . Heartburn is the perfect, bittersweet, sobbingly funny, all-too-true confessional novel' Nigella Lawson Seven months into her pregnancy, Rachel discovers that her husband is in love with another woman. The fact that this woman has a 'neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb' is no consolation. Food sometimes is, though, since Rachel is a cookery writer, and between trying to win Mark back and wishing him dead, she offers us some of her favourite recipes. Heartburn is a roller coaster of love, betrayal, loss and - most satisfyingly - revenge. This is Nora Ephron's (screenwriter of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle) roman a clef: 'I always thought during the pain of the marriage that one day it would make a funny book,' she once said - And it is!

'This is a collection full of energy and stunning, quiet innovation ... it spills over with contempt, raucous humour, sadness and generosity. In it, life and language are synonymous, and there is no higher praise. What a wonderful book' Ali Smith Here are all Grace Paley's classic stories in one volume. Paley's quirky, boisterous characters and rich use of language won her readers' hearts and secured her place as one of America's most accomplished short-story writers. Her stories are united by her signature interweaving of personal and political truths, her extraordinary capacity for empathy and her pointed depiction of the small and large events that make up daily life.

«Katherine Heinys Romandebüt ist nicht nur eines der witzigsten, sondern auch der wahrhaftigsten und rührendsten Bücher jemals.» Daily Mail Was bedeutet Treue in der Liebe?

Wie schon in ihrem Debüt „Glücklich, vielleicht“ widmet sich Katherine Heiny den Irrungen und Wirrungen des menschlichen Herzens. Ein herrlich lakonischer Roman über die Fallstricke im Liebes- und Beziehungsleben ach so moderner, aufgeklärter Menschen, ebenso einfühlsam wie präzise erzählt und mit reichlich Situationskomik – sodass man oft nicht weiß, ob man nun lachen, weinen oder sich an den Kopf fassen soll.

A delightful and unexpected collection of pieces by writers, foodies, and others-including Nora Ephron, Marcella Hazan, and Ann Patchett-on the distinctive experiences of cooking for one and dining alone. If, sooner or later, we all face the prospect of eating alone, then Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant provides the perfect set of instructions. In this unique collection, twenty-six writers and foodies invite readers into their kitchens to reflect on the secret meals they make for themselves when no one else is looking: the indulgent truffled egg sandwich, the comforting bowl of black beans, the bracing anchovy fillet on buttered toast. From Italy to New York to Cape Cod to Thailand, from M. F. K. Fisher to Steve Almond to Nora Ephron, the experiences collected in this book are as diverse, moving, hilarious, and uplifting as the meals they describe. Haruki Murakami finds solace in spaghetti. Ephron mends a broken heart with mashed potatoes in bed. Ann Patchett trades...
