Henry Ephron was an American playwright, screenwriter and film producer who often worked with his wife, Phoebe Ephron from the early 1940s through the early 1960s. All four of their daughters - Nora, Delia, Hallie and Amy – also became notable writers.
Oldest of the four, Nora was married to journalist Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame. The breakup of their marriage inspired her to write the 1983 novel Heartburn, which was then made into a Mike Nichols movie of the same name. Before her death in 2012, Nora wrote two memoirs - I Feel Bad About My Neck and I Remember Nothing.
