Seven months into her pregnancy, Rachel Samstat discovers that her husband, Mark, is in love with another woman. The fact that the other woman has a neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb is no consolation. Food sometimes is, though, since Rachel writes cookbooks for a living. And in between trying to win Mark back and loudly wishing him dead, Ephron's irrepressible heroine offers some of her favorite recipes.

An extremely enjoyable(!) account of the breakup of her marriage, if that is possible. Well worth reading just to experience NE's way with words. Some would drown their sorrows in depression. NE landed on her feet by writing a best selling book. Very engagingly read by Meryl Streep.

Very angry book.

Meryl Streep IS Rachel in this laugh-out-loud biting novel about a woman scorned. One of the best audios I've heard this year. Won the American Library Association Listen List Award.

You fall in love with someone, and part of what you love about him are the differences between you; and then you get married and the differences start to drive you crazy.

Everyone always asks, was he mad at you for writing the book? and I have to say, Yes, yes, he was. He still is. It is one of the most fascinating things to me about the whole episode: he cheated on me, and then got to behave as if he was the one who had been wronged because I wrote about it! I mean, it's not as if I wasn't a writer. It's not as if I hadn't often written about myself. I'd even written about him. What did he think was going to happen? That I would take a vow of silence for the first time in my life?
