Ephron, Nora

  1. Ephron, Nora Dies (MSNBC News)
      "Nora Ephron, the celebrated screenwriter and director, died of leukemia Tuesday evening in New York, according to The New York Times."

      "Ephron, best known for penning the screenplay for 'When Harry Met Sally' (1989) and then writing and directing 'Sleepless in Seattle'... and 'You've Got Mail' (1998), had not been reported as ill prior to a story from gossip columnist Liz Smith -- which repeatedly referred to the 71-year-old in the past tense while never pronouncing her dead." 06-12

  2. Ephron, Nora: Profile (The New Yorker)
      "Because of her ladylike bearing and her extraordinary comic timing, people tend to experience Ephron as jaunty and fresh. That does not mean that they are not often slightly afraid of her, too." 06-12

  3. Ephron, Nora: Remembering (
      "Her death feels like a kind of robbery, not of things you have, but of gifts you were expecting. She was 71, but surely there would be another collection of essays, two or three more movies to watch repeatedly, as comforting as a bowl of the mashed potatoes and cold slices of butter she loved? If she were preparing to die, wouldn’t this most graceful sharer tell us about it, in some strangely comforting way?" 06-12

  4. Ephron, Nora: Voice and Detail By Tom Hanks (
      "For a wrap gift, she would send you a note saying something like, 'A man is going to come to your house to plant an orange tree—or apple or pomegranate or ­whatever—and you will eat its fruit for the rest of your days.' Rita and I chose orange, and the fruit has been lovely, sweet and abundant, just as Nora promised—a constant and perfect reminder of the woman we loved so much." 06-12
