It’s old news now, but Nora Ephron passed away on Tuesday in New York City. She was 71-years-old.
I’m not going to pretend that I can say anything better about her than what others have already said. Nora was a journalist, essayist, novelist, screenwriter, movie producer and director and so much more. Nora did everything she undertook in a style all her own and with her wonderful trademark wit. I greatly admired her work and I’m sad that she’s gone.
I’m sharing a portion of a video I found a few years ago with her and another writing legend, Pete Hamill. They’re discussing the old newsroom at the New York Post. It’s a delightful conversation with two delightful people.
