Why am I so blah on Nora Ephron when everyone else raves about her? Her movies leave me cold, always cute and predictable. Prompted by the outpouring upon her recent death, I decided to check out her early work. I found her writing is crisp and often funny.

But when I look at the dates listed on her magazine articles I think, wow, there were so many things going on then, and she talks about Bill Blass? So many pages for such a disappointing movie as Catch-22?

Yes, I know she was responding to the commercial demands of these magazines. But Joan Didion she ain't.
