Sometimes I believe that love dies but hope springs eternal. Sometimes I believe that hope dies but love springs eternal. Sometimes I believe that sex plus guilt equals love, and sometimes I believe that sex plus guilt equals good sex. Sometimes I believe that love is as natural as the tides, and sometimes I believe that love is an act of will. Sometimes I believe that some people are better at love than others, and sometimes I believe that everyone is faking it. Sometimes I believe that love is essential, and sometimes I believe that the only reason love is essential is that otherwise you spend all your time looking for it.

Heartburn

All Nora Ephron’s books are great — dirty and mean and gossipy and wild and epigrammatic and hilarious —  especially her early ones.  If you only know her as a director and screenwriter of rom-coms and have never read Crazy Salad or Scribble Scribble or Heartburn, now is a good time to read them.
