Two out-of-print Nora Ephron titles to be published as a single volume

Any existing physical copies of Nora Ephron’s Crazy Salad: Some Things about Women and Scribble, Scribble: Notes on the Media are probably well-worn, underlined, and doggy-eared by now. Crazy Salad and Scribble, Scribble have been out-of-print as solo volumes since 1991 and 1984, respectively. Vintage will be giving these two landmark books a fresh printing as a single volume come Oct. 16. They will also be available in their entirety as e-books for the first time on that date.

Crazy Salad, originally published in 1975, contains Ephron’s famous, oft-quoted essay “A Few Words About Breasts.”

After Ephron died in June, did you go looking for her backlist only to have trouble finding these two titles?

Nora Ephron's life in books: Read some of her best quotes

Nora Ephron, who died of acute myeloid leukemia last night at age 71, was perhaps best known for her films When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and Julie & Julia — but she began her career in words as an essayist, and remained one throughout her life. Her essay collections — and for that matter, her 1983 novel Heartburn about her messy divorce from journalist Carl Bernstein — were funny, sharp, relatable, and highly personal, and they became even more so in her later years. Click through for some of the most memorable zingers, observations, and bon mots from her ever-quotable books.
