Sister Mother Husband Dog (etc) by bestselling author and screenwriter Delia Ephron.
In Sister Mother Husband Dog (etc) 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 girlfriends 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.
Sister Mother Husband Dog (etc), written by Delia Ephron, is a brand new release from Simon & Schuster.
