Book Preview: What Nora Knew

what nora knewThe Nora in What Nora Knew (2014), by Linda Yellin, is Nora Ephron. In this homage to the talented writer and director who won acclaim for her romantic comedies, Yellin tells the story of Long Islander Molly Hallberg, a journalist trying to make it as a writer in New York City.

Molly avoids working in her family’s upholstery shop by taking every crazy job available at an online magazine, in the hopes of earning her own column. Her latest assignment is to write about romance in New York City, in the style of Nora Ephron, but she fails miserably. She can’t recognize true romance when she sees it.

A risk-taker at work, the divorced thirty-nine year old cynic has a dull but dependable boyfriend. She plays it safe in love, until she keeps running into a man she can’t ignore, and learns to take a chance on love. This tale promises a whirlwind tour of New York City and plenty of humor.
