Sadly, writer, screenwriter & director Ephron died yesterday--yet even just reading the obituaries made me laugh. Read, for example, her reprinted comments ruing the fact that she was "probably the only young woman who ever worked in the Kennedy White House whom the president did not make a pass at"....perhaps because of her unfortunate permanent wave, or because she was Jewish, or because "JFK somehow sensed that discretion was not my middle name. I mean, I assure you that if anything had gone on between the two of us, you would not have had to wait this long to find it out." If you're a middle-aged woman, need a laugh, and haven't yet read Ephron's I Feel Bad About My Neck, do it now. And it's probably time to re-watch some of her famous and award-winning movies, like Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally, and You've Got Mail. Check Our Catalog for more of her essay collections.
