I'LL HAVE WHAT SHE'S HAVING How Nora Ephron's Three Iconic Films Saved the Romantic Comedy

by | Read by Amy Tallmadge

Contemporary Culture • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Amy Tallmadge's adolescent overly enthusiastic tone does little to help the jumpy and convoluted rendering of thoughts, theories, and information on WHEN HARRY MET SALLY, SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, and YOU'VE GOT MAIL. Erin Carlson's behind-the-scenes look at the genius of Nora Ephron does not do her brilliance justice. The research may be thorough and the tone bright and breezy, but her ultra-contemporary writing style makes her ideas difficult to follow. Countless mispronunciations make the listener wonder about the production values. These include names as simple as David Susskind's surname and as common an expression as "roman à clef." In more capable hands, this work would have had much more to deliver. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
