Recording Corona: Quarantine Experiences in the Midwest

Recording Corona: Quarantine Experiences in the Midwest

More Info
COVID-19 turned our worlds upside-down, changing how we work, shop, socialize, and show love to family and friends. Because most of this deep shift took place individually, quietly, and alone in our homes, Elaine Schleiffer, a local community organizer, wanted to create a capsule of life experiences when the pandemic hit the U.S. in Spring 2020. She partnered with Lou Barrett to create Recording Corona, a blog for people to share their stories and insights. This anthology is a printed collection of those posts, all of which came from people in the Midwest, primarily from Cleveland. They span a variety of experiences; queer folks, single and partnered people, employed people and those laid off due to the pandemic, and many more. We hope that in reading this collection you feel a sense of solidarity based on your own experiences.

“Nora Ephron can write about anything better than anybody else can write about anything.”—The New York Times

From her Academy Award–nominated screenplays to her bestselling fiction and essays, Nora Ephron is one of America’s most gifted, prolific, and versatile writers. In this classic collection of magazine articles, Ephron does what she does best: embrace American culture with love, cynicism, and unmatched wit. From tracking down the beginnings of the self-help movement to dressing down the fashion world’s most powerful publication to capturing a glimpse of a legendary movie in the making, these timeless pieces tap into our enduring obsessions with celebrity, food, romance, clothes, entertainment, and sex. Whether casting her ingenious eye on renowned director Mike Nichols, Cosmopolitan magazine founder Helen Gurley Brown—or herself, as she chronicles her own beauty makeover—Ephron deftly weaves her journalistic skill with the intimate style of an essayist and the incomparable talent of a great storyteller.
