I'll Have What She's Having: How Nora Ephron's Three Iconic Films Saved the Romantic Comedy [Audiobook] by Erin Carlson
English | August 29th, 2017 | ASIN: B0725NT5QP, ISBN: 0316353884 | MP3@64 kbps | 10 hrs 41 mins | 294.58 MB
Narrator: Amy Tallmadge

In I'll Have What She's Having, entertainment journalist Erin Carlson tells the story of the real Nora Ephron and how she reinvented the romcom through her trio of instant classics. With a cast of famous faces including Reiner, Hanks, Ryan, and Crystal, Carlson takes listeners on a rollicking, revelatory trip to Ephron's New York City, where reality took a backseat to romance and Ephron - who always knew what she wanted and how she wanted it - ruled the set with an attention to detail that made her actors feel safe but sometimes exasperated crew members.
