Write It Down

Sister Mother Husband Dog (etc.) by Delia Ephron is a delightful collection of sister_mother_husband_dogautobiographical essays.  The stories are sad, humorous, witty, and revealing.

The book opens with a story about the passing of Delia’s older sister, Nora.  I thought this was a sad note upon which to begin a book, but completely understand the choice of placing it at the beginning as a way of honoring Nora.

There are essays about living with alcoholic parents, her beloved dog, bad hair days, technology and bakeries.  I especially enjoyed and could relate to the many insights about writing contained in the book.

This is a quick read; one I enjoyed spending time with.
