Description for Heartburn (Virago Modern Classics)
I have bought more copies of this book to give to people, in a frenzy of enthusiasm, than any other...HEARTBURN is the perfect, bittersweet, sobbingly funny, all-too-true confessional novel. There is not a wrong word - about food, marriage, life, love, loss.
I am not a great reader of comic novels, but Ephron's hilarious, recipe-strewn, semi-autobiographical account of a heavily pregnant woman whose husband has left her for a woman with a 'neck as long as an arm' is a treat. A perfect example of Ephron's gift for turning tragedy into comedy, Heartburn is evidence that revenge is indeed a dish best served cold
[Ephron] chatters up a storm, always on the verge of wisecracking up
The autobiographical novel by Nora Ephron, Oscar-nominated screenwriter (When Harry Met Sally) and successful director (Sleepless in Seattle), is a bittersweet book about love and lossSee all Description for Heartburn (Virago Modern Classics)

Not funny at all, it did not sit right with me.
I am not one to follow ones life (even though the Authour claims it's fiction) of just continual negative boring ongoing rubbish.
It was a book club choice therefore not something I would normally read.
Now I know why!!
