When Ephron passed away recently, Charlie Rose showed a wonderful interview that had been taped shortly after she had published this slim volume. I'm so glad I saw that piece, as it put her voice firmly in place as I enjoyed these essays. The book starts funny, the mid section is a fascinating look back on what Ephron did remember, and the end is sweet and sad with her reflections about Lillian Hellman, the nature of friendships and the joys of a walk in the park. Particularly strong is the essay on the addictive nature of computerized speed Scrabble playing (she nailed it), and now, in retrospect, "What I will Miss"
Best for the readers holding an AARP card or close to it!
