“I have not now nor ever have been married, divorced, or had children (nor for that matter been a Jewish New Yorker!) yet I totally related to Ephron’s ‘character’ in Heartburn.

Seven months into her pregnancy, Rachel discovers that her husband is in love with another woman. The fact that this woman has a ‘neck as long as an arm and a nose as long as a thumb’ is no consolation. Food sometimes is, though, since Rachel is a cookery writer, and between trying to win Mark back and wishing him dead, she offers us some of her favourite recipes. Heartburn is a roller coaster of love, betrayal, loss and – most satisfyingly – revenge. This is Nora Ephron’s (screenwriter of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle) roman a clef: ‘I always thought during the pain of the marriage that one day it would make a funny book,’ she once said – And it is!

‘I have bought more copies of this book to give to people, in a frenzy of enthusiasm, than any other… Heartburn is the perfect, bittersweet, sobbingly funny, all-too-true confessional novel’ Nigella Lawson.
