I am looking forward to owning 'The Most of Nora Ephron' - 576 pages! and the film 'Everything is Copy'. (see trailer below) And! If you have never seen Nora baking key lime pie with Martha Stewart - when Martha reveals a huge secret....then watch that too!
Nora Ephron once said that her mother understood that the “tragedies of your life one day have the potential to be comic stories the next.” Indeed, when Nora Ephron was visiting her dying mother at Doctors Hospital in New York City, Phoebe Ephron told her, “Take notes, Nora, take notes. Everything is copy.” Phoebe Ephron died on October 13, 1971.
Nora's guiding principle was evident in this quote:
“When you slip on a banana peel people laugh at you. But when you tell people you slipped on a banana peel, it’s your laugh.” - Nora Ephron
What is your favorite Nora Ephron book or movie?
