Bookshelf | I Remember Nothing: And Other Reflections by Nora Ephron (2010) | I will always remember how much I loved this book

Memory loss. Teflon. Journalism. Salt. Broken marriages. Hollywood. Hated-on holiday pies. Aging. Chicken soup. Inheritances. Lillian Hellman. Egg-white omelettes. Email… These are just some of the wide range of subjects on which the brilliant Nora Ephron reflects in this entertaining collection of essays—and not necessarily in that order.

When Harry Met Sally is one of my absolute favorite movies of all time. I also like the 1986 film Heartburn starring Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson. Since the screenplays for both of these films–as well as Julie & Julia, which I also liked–were written by screenwriter, director, novelist, journalist, and playwright Nora Ephron, I expected to enjoy my first taste of her prose. And I certainly did. I absolutely loved these essays. Some were touching. Some were enlightening. Many of them made me laugh out loud. All of them were entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I can’t wait to experience more of her writing.

Bookshelf Favorite!
