When Nora Ephron died endmost year, at age 71, she left behind a wealth of material, most magnificently the 14 feature films she wrote or directed, including “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless in Seattle.” Her career as an litterateur preceded her smell career, and although more of her collections of essays were widely read and received warm by critics, they human in some ways been overshadowed by the mighty and holdup cultural traction of her films.
