Crazy Salad

The filmmaker behind When Harry Met Sally... examines women's movements in her essay, Crazy Salad.

Nora Ephron

​This edition brings together some of Ephron's most famous writing on a generation of women (and men) who helped shape the way we live now, and on events ranging from the Watergate scandal to the Pillsbury Bake-Off. In these sharp, hilariously entertaining and vividly observed pieces, Ephron illuminates an era with wicked honesty and insight. From the famous A Few Words About Breasts to important pieces on her time working for the New York Post and Gourmet Magazine, these essays show Ephron at her very best. (From Vintage)
