I’m a big fan of Nora Ephron’s movies and books (books like Heartburn, Crazy Salad and Scribble Scribble, I Feel Bad about My Neck; movies like When Harry Met, Sleepless in Seattle). In fact, I just recommended Heartburn for my monthly book club (you can sign up for the book club here). I was re-reading that novel, to learn from it as a writer, because that kind of light, funny, flowing writing is extremely hard to pull off. How does she do it? I’m also a big fan of the work of her sister, Delia Ephron. I loved her wonderful book of essays, Sister Mother Husband Dog: (Etc.). The story I tell is something from the essay she wrote about her sister Nora — about the nature of intimacy. If you want to hear more from Delia Ephron, here’s a post I wrote inspired by the essay “Bakeries” in the same collection: “Discardia,” or How One Moderator Manages to Indulge Moderately. All about the Abstainer/Moderator split. Want to get in touch?

In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
