Distraught

“Ms. Ephron’s collection “I Remember Nothing” concludes with two lists, one of things she says she won’t miss and one of things she will. Among the “won’t miss” items are dry skin, Clarence Thomas, the sound of the vacuum cleaner, and panels on “Women in Film.” The other list, of the things she will miss, begins with “my kids” and “Nick” and ends this way:

“Taking a bath

Coming over the bridge to Manhattan

Pie.”

– The New York Times

The woman who made me want to be a writer has died.

Goodbye, Nora. Your inspiration will be missed. The world is already poorer without you.

I’ll keep your pie warm for you.
