Description

In SISTER MOTHER HUSBAND DOG, Delia Ephron brings her trademark wit and effervescent prose to a series of autobiographical essays about life, love, writing, movies, and family.

In “Sister,” she deftly captures the rivalry, mutual respect, and intimacy that made up her relationship with her older sister and frequent writing companion, Nora. “Blame It on the Movies” is Ephron’s wry and romantic essay about becoming a writer and finding a storybook ending to her twenties, though it was just the beginning of a lifetime of taking notes. “Bakeries” is both a lighthearted tour through her favorite downtown patisseries and a thoughtful, deeply felt reflection on the dilemma of “having it all.”

Her keen observations on modern living include the joy of girlfriends; a consideration of the miracle of dogs; haunting recollections of life with her famed screenwriter mother; and growing up the child of alcoholics. Ephron’s eloquent style and voice illuminate every page.

Delia Ephron’s movies include The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, You’ve Got Mail, Hanging Up (based on her novel), and Michael (starring John Travolta).

She has written novels (her most recent being The Lion Is In) and books of humor (How to Eat Like a Child).

Her journalism has appeared regularly in The New York Times, O: The Oprah Magazine, Vogue, More, and The Huffington Post. Ephron’s hit play Love, Loss and What I Wore (cowritten with Nora Ephron) has been performed off-Broadway and around the world. She lives in New York City.
