Rest in Peace, Nora Ephron

I watched Nora Ephron's movie Heartburn last night, which I had never seen before, even though I am a fan. Probably when it came out in the mid-eighties, the idea of a movie about the end of a marriage, based on her divorce from Carl Bernstein, and the balancing of babies and a writing career did not interest me. I never thought I'd be having babies, back then, in my mid-twenties.You don't know how your life will end up.

In November 2010, I referenced Ms. Ephron's thoughts on mortality in this post.

  1. I have been dying to see Heartburn ever since I heard about Ms. Ephron's death! Thanks for reminding me to do so.

    And how about how this talented woman was also a great secret-keeper -- never divulging Deep Throat's identity all those years! I wonder if she also knew who Carly Simon's "You're So Vain" was really about...
