The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen will write a biography of the late writer Nora Ephron, Page Six reported on Sunday. Cohen, friends with Ephron since the 1970s when she first began dating Carl Bernstein, reportedly asked Ephron’s family if he could write the biography. Cohen was the first speaker at Ephron’s funeral, at her request. “Nora Ephron and I started out as enemies,” he wrote after her death. She was angry over something he wrote about her. “I was awestruck, also intimidated, and so some months later when she came to my door with her new boyfriend [Bernstein], she coyly said, ‘This is going to be like the movies. We start as enemies and end as friends.’ She extended her hand. I took it and never let it go,” Cohen wrote.
