In Sister Mother
Husband Dog, Delia Ephron brings her trademark wit and effervescent prose
to a series of unforgettable, moving, and provocative essays.
The emotional linchpin in this collection is the Ephron’s
stirring, eloquent response to the death of Nora Ephron—Delia’s 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 this collection run the gamut from a hysterical piece about love and the
movies—how one romantic comedy 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 and growing up the child of alcoholics.
Ephron’s sparkling wit and humanity is present on and
emotionally resonant in Sister Mother
