I do know the difference between a fictional character and a real person – Delia Ephron for the NYTimes.com

Michelle and Robert King, the show’s creators, posted a note to fans, assuring us that Will Gardner may be dead, but Josh Charles, who plays him, “is very much alive and remains an integral part of our family.” Thank you. I may be obsessed with the show, but I do know the difference between a fictional character and a real person. Josh Charles wants to “move on to other creative endeavors,” they say. He wants to direct, for instance. Who doesn’t? I’m sure if my dog could speak, she would say she wants to direct.

I just love this. I remember being in college and reading a book of Delia Ephron’s for the first time, and only later did I figure out her parents, Phoebe and Henry, had written one of my favorite films, “Desk Set”…her very talented sister did direct, and “funny” runs deep in the family.

      It’s odd how simple thoughts can be shattering in that context. I think that’s what makes Delia’s and Nora’s writing so affecting, it’s so clearly observed.

        growing up with Those Parents would have made any budding baby writer tread on eggshells and make sure they knew what was going on at All Times.

        just saying 😉

        I seem to remember a movie about…three sisters (?) and their aging, alcoholic parents in Bev. Hills…

        right 😉

        And, I remember thinking it would have made a better book… Gritty and funny is harder to achieve on film.
