Is it possible to write a sidesplitting novel about the breakup of the perfect marriage? If the writer is Nora Ephron, the answer is a resounding yes. For in this inspired confection of adultery, revenge, group therapy, and pot roast, the creator of Sleepless in Seattle reminds us that comedy depends on anguish as surely as a proper gravy depends on flour and butter.

Seven months into her pregnancy, Rachel Samstat discovers that her husband, Mark, is in love with another woman. The fact that the other woman has 'a neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb and you should see her legs' is no consolation. Food sometimes is, though, since Rachel writes cookbooks for a living. And in between trying to win Mark back and loudly wishing him dead, Ephron's irrepressible heroine offers some of her favorite recipes. Heartburn is a sinfully delicious novel, as soul-satisfying as mashed potatoes and as airy as a perfect soufflé.

It was honestly a little too bourgeois for my taste but Meryl Streep did a fabulous job.

Love hearing Maryl talk no matter what and she makes this book more tolerable. Big Nora ephron fan but this one might not hold up in 2023. Lots of group identifying language that is not PC. Somewhat cringy.

I quite enjoyed this but it felt very slight. Well read, of course.

Difficult to follow and felt cluttered.

While the book is funny in some places, it begins to drag in the middle.
