Nora Ephron, 1941-2012
A woman after my own heart. Nora Ephron passed tonight, at age 71,
"...The cause was pneumonia brought on by acute myeloid leukemia, her son Jacob Bernstein said.
In a commencement address she delivered in 1996 at Wellesley College, her alma mater, Ms. Ephron recalled that women of her generation weren’t expected to do much of anything. But she wound up having several careers, all of them successfully and many of them simultaneously.
She was a journalist, a blogger, an essayist, a novelist, a playwright, an Oscar-nominated screenwriter and a movie director — a rarity in a film industry whose directorial ranks were and continue to be dominated by men..." so says charles mcgrath, ( CHARLES McGRATH ), who quotes Meryl Streep saying that Nora was "...'a stalwart. You could call on her for anything: doctors, restaurants, recipes, speeches, or just a few jokes, and we all did it, constantly,' she wrote in her e-mail. 'She was an expert in all the departments of living well'.”
