She wrote several books during her lifetime including Heartburn, Wallflower at the Orgy, Crazy Salad: Some Things about Women, Scribble Scribble, I Feel Bad about My Neck: And Other Reflections on Being a Woman, and I Remember Nothing: And Other Reflections. In her later years, she was a blogger for The Huffington Post. She wrote several screenplays including Silkwood (1983), Heartburn (1986), and When Harry Met Sally (1989).
