Sister Mother Husband Dog (Etc), Paperback

Sister Mother Husband Dog (Etc) Paperback


Delia Ephron brings her trademark wit and effervescent prose to a series of unforgettable, moving and provocative essays.

The emotional lynchpin is the author's stirring, eloquent response to the death of Nora Ephron, her older sister and frequent writing companion.

In 'Sister', she deftly captures the love, rivalry, respect and intimacy that made up her relationship with her sister in a way that is at once deeply personal and comfortingly universal.

Other essays in the collection run the gamut from a hysterical piece about love and the movies - how romantic comedies completely destroyed her twenties - to the joy of girlfriends and best friendship, the magical madness and miracle of dogs, keen-eyed observations about urban survival, and a serious and affecting memoir of life with her mother - growing up the child of alcoholics.

Ephron's sparkling wit and humanity is present on every emotionally resonant page.
