Nora Ephron: Rocking the '80s 'do
Q: Can they be friends? A: NO.
We have no idea how many times we’ve seen . . . When Harry Met Sally. Seven? Fifty? Does it matter? Woody Allen may have perfected the romantic comedy, but Nora Ephron revamped the genre into chick-flick status — and there are a million single girls who love her for it. Screenwriter, director, and novelist, Ephron is a triple threat when it comes to conveying the highs and lows of getting older and falling in love. Her new essay collection, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman, is a wry, analysis-free retrospective on her own life, embodying the idea that it’s okay to have hope while acting as if everything were utterly hopeless. She’ll read tomorrow at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline | 6 pm | $2 | 617.566.6660.
