40TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION, WITH A FOREWORD BY STANLEY TUCCI
Heartburn is a roller coaster of love, betrayal, loss and most satisfyingly revenge. Seven months into her pregnancy, Rachel discovers that her husband is in love with another woman. The fact that this woman has a 'neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb' is no consolation. Food sometimes is, though, since Rachel is a cookery writer, and between trying to win Mark back and wishing him dead, she offers us some of her favourite recipes.
Nora Ephron shows us that a pen is mightier than the sword in this roman-a-clef. 'I always thought during the pain of marriage that one day it would make a funny book,' she once said - and it is!
"Heartburn is the perfect, bittersweet, sobbingly funny, all-too-true confessional novel" - NIGELLA LAWSON
