Yes, yes, I DO know that Nora Ephron is the one who recently passed away. I was just reading about her again in TIME magazine, and have read about her several times in other places.
However, despite having reallly enjoyed the movie “When Harry Met Sally”, I have never actually read any of her books. Till today I thought I had read one. Turns out though, (thank you, Google!) that ” If Life is a Bowl of Cherries What am I Doing in the Pits” was written by Erma Bombeck…
On the other hand, I have a very clear memory of getting Delia Ephron’s book “Teenage Romance” as a gift for my 19th birthday. I remember finding it both amusing and relevant and being really frustrated that I couldn’t share it with my friends as it didn’t have a Hebrew translation back then. As far as I can tell, it still hasn’t been translated into Hebrew.
What I don’t remember is to whom I gave the book to. I hope it was my niece when she was a younger teen than I was when I got it. All I know is I haven’t had it on my shelf for many years now. In any case, I hope it is making the rounds among people who enjoy it!
