Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"HILARIOUS. . . A CHARMING, ENTERTAINING READ."

--Los Angeles Times

"WONDERFUL. . . Eve Mozell is having a lousy day, and she hasn't even gotten past breakfast yet. Her father, a senile ex-alcoholic whose idea of a good joke is goosing his woman doctor, started phoning Eve at 6 a.m. Her teenage son, who alternately ignores and lectures her, is off to a séance. ('You know, Mom, all doors are entrances. Think about it.') And a quick glance in the mirror turns out to be a big mistake. Oh, God, is that my face? . . . I need a vacation. No. This is just me. Me at forty-four. . . . What a terrific debut."

--Newsweek

"TRUE AND TOUCHING."

--People

"Delia Ephron is blessed with the driest of wits, the tenderest of hearts, and an uncanny ear for the way people really talk. Do yourself a favor and curl up with Hanging Up--but unplug the phone first."

--Armistead Maupin

"MOVING AND FUNNY. . . In some ways, Hanging Up is a funhouse version of King Lear."

--Newsday

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Destined for a Christmas film release from Columbia Pictures, this heartfelt novel by the co-screenwriter of "Sleepless in Seattle" is about a woman trying to keep her life and her loose-cannon family in order. "Delia Ephron is blessed with the driest of wits, the tenderest of hearts, and an uncanny ear for the way people talk."--Armistead Maupin. The movie will star Meg Ryan and Diane Keaton.
