Sister Mother Husband Dog: Etc.

Delia Ephron, read by Meg Ryan. Brilliance Audio, unabridged, four CDs, 4.5 hrs., $29.99 ISBN 978-1-4805-5709-3
In this collection of essays, Ephron waxes poetic about the nature of relationships and how she negotiated them through good times and bad. From her poor choices in husbands and the love she has for her sister (the late Nora Ephron) to her life with alcoholic parents, Ephron teases out some of the more complex and nuanced emotions that life has to offer. Yet her tone is one of amused contentedness as she recognizes both her flaws and the challenges that come when people share their lives. Narrator Ryan skillfully delivers Ephron’s prose in this audio edition. Her timing and emphasis drive home the author’s poignant contemplations and self-mockery. Ryan captures not only the feeling of Ephron’s book, but also its humor. A Blue Rider hardcover. (Sept.)
