(78)She Made Me Laugh - My Friend Nora Ephron by Richard Cohen

I want to be like Nora Ephron when I grow up.  According to one of her closest friends, Richard Cohen, she was everything I strive to be like.  Funny, brilliant, fiercely loyal and fiercely devoted to her family and friends.

I have seen Nora's movies, in fact, You've Got Mail is still one of my all-time favorite movies.  I have read her books like I Remember Nothing. She had a way of making her fans believe that good things, like love, could happen to good people.  What I didn't know was that her first husband was Carl Bernstein of the "Woodward and Bernstein" duo, you know, the Watergate scandal that brought down a president.  I also didn't know that Joe Fox was based on an old boyfriend of hers.  Or that her third husband wrote the book that Goodfellas was based on and he also wrote Casino.   There have been many rumors floating around that the author of this book, Richard Cohen, was the basis for Harry in When Harry Met Sally, but he denies it.

Bottom line - I like many others, was devastated when we learned of Nora Ephron's death. We didn't know then that Nora had kept her Leukemia from many of her friends. She lived a full and busy life right up to the very end and her passing has left a hole in the hearts of many.
