Nora Ephron's hilarious and bittersweet novel about a marriage on the rocks - a rollercoaster of love, betrayal and, most satisfyingly, revenge.

Seven months into her pregnancy, food writer Rachel Samstat discovers that her husband Mark - a man who ‘would be capable of having sex with a Venetian blind’ - is in love with another woman. In between trying to work out what went wrong, trying to win him back and loudly wishing him dead, the irrepressible Rachel offers us her favourite recipes in this tabasco-spiked comedy.

Today: memories of meeting Mark a Washington party...
