Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hollywood screenwriter and bestselling author Delia Ephron returns with a memorable collection of personal and poignant stories and essays, anchored by a remembrance of losing her older sister, Nora Ephron.

In Sister Mother Husband Dog, Delia Ephron brings her trademark wit and effervescent prose to a series of unforgettable, moving, and provocative essays. The emotional linchpin in this collection is the author's stirring, eloquent response to the death of Nora Ephron — Delia's older sister and frequent writing companion. In Sister, Ephron deftly captures the love, rivalry, respect, and intimacy that made up her relationship with her sister in a way that is at once deeply personal and comfortingly universal. Other essays in this collection run the gamut from a hysterical piece about love and the movies — how one romantic comedy completely destroyed her twenties, to the joy of girl friends and best friendship, the magical madness and miracle of dogs, keen-eyed observations about urban survival, and a serious and affecting memoir of life with her mother — growing up the child of alcoholics. Ephron's sparkling wit and humanity is present on every emotionally resonant page of Sister Mother Husband Dog.

Synopsis:
