Nora Ephron’s Final Written Work Will Only Be Available in Hardcover Collection

Knopf will publish Lucky Guy, the final written work by the great Nora Ephron, as part of a hardcover-only release on October 29th.

The play will be part of a $35 collection edited by Robert Gottlieb called The Most of Nora Ephron. Lucky Guy tells the story of Pulitzer Prize-winning police reporter in New York City, and Tom Hanks now stars in the Broadway edition of the play. Gottlieb introduced the book in the release:

It includes her brilliant writing as a reporter and columnist, her novel, Heartburn, and her screenplay for When Harry Met Sally… as well as her last finished work, the play Lucky Guy. Nora’s unique takes on feminism, politics, family, marriage, food, being a woman, aging, and dying — everything her readers came to admire and love her for — are represented here. Hers was a remarkable life in letters.
