So sad that Nora lost her battle with cancer.. She was an amazing writer, creating so many interesting and strong female characters. She was able to describe us women so accurately, our many layers and complications, and never resorting to boring stereotypes. I loved her movies too, When Harry Met Sally, and Sleepless in Seattle (which she also directed) are favorites.
"Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady. I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women." Nora Ephron, from Wellesley Commencement address, 1996
