...if I tell the story, I control the versio..I can make you laughand I would rather have you laugh at me than feel sorry for me..."

Written with warmth and humor, this is the story of the end of a very public marriage. Yes, some parts are dated, but Ephron had a lot of insight as to why women try to stay, and demonstrated courage in choosing to leave her cheating husband.

"I still love you, I thought...And in the meantime I'm getting out. I am no beauty, and I'm getting on in years, and I have just about enough money to last sixty day, and I am terrified of being alone, and I can't bear the idea of divorce, but I would rather die than sit her and pretend it's okay..."

It had me laughing out loud and welling up with tears... oh and great recipes interpersed within the story!
