THE MOST OF NORA EPHRON, With LUCKY GUY, Now Available For Pre-Order, Out 10/29
A posthumous collection of material from the unique and well-regarded life and career of screenwriter, journalist, director, playwright and essayist Nora Ephron titled THE MOST OF Nora Ephron is now available to pre-order, out at the end of this month.
Most notably, THE MOST OF Nora Ephron marks the first publishing of Ephron's recently presented Broadway play LUCKY GUY, which was directed by George C. Wolfe and starred Tom Hanks on Broadway in the 2012-13 season.
Additionally, Ephron also created another theatrical entity near the end of her life, the popular and long-running Off-Broadway play LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE along with her sister, Delia, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman.
The official description of THE MOST OF Nora Ephron is as follows: "A whopping big celebration of the work of the late, great Nora Ephron, America's funniest-and most acute-writer, famous for her brilliant takes on life as we've been living it these last forty years. Everything you could possibly want from Nora Ephron is here-from her writings on journalism, feminism, and being a woman (the notorious piece on being flat-chested, the clarion call of her commencement address at Wellesley) to her best-selling novel, Heartburn, written in the wake of her devastating divorce from Carl Bernstein; from her hilarious and touching screenplay for the movie When Harry Met Sally . . . ("I'll have what she's having") to her recent play Lucky Guy (published here for the first time); from her ongoing love affair with food, recipes and all, to her extended takes on such controversial women as Lillian Hellman and Helen Gurley Brown; from her pithy blogs on politics to her moving meditations on aging ("I Feel Bad About My Neck") and dying. Her superb writing, her unforgettable movies, her honesty and fearlessness, her nonpareil humor have made Nora Ephron an icon for America's women-and not a few of its men."
