I don’t have a copy of the Dutch version but here’s the quote taken from an essay entitled “The Legend” in the American edition of another compilation, I Remember Nothing And Other Reflections:
We were taught that organized religion was the root of all evil and that Adlai Stevenson was God. We were indoctrinated in my mother’s rules: Never buy a red coat. Red meat keeps your hair from turning gray. You can leave the table but you may not leave the table. Girdles ruin your stomach muscles.
I liked Ms Ephron, she made me laugh but I don’t agree with her mother on the red coats issue.
My mother passed away suddenly on Christmas Day; she always looked wonderful in red coats and woollen jackets and I was tempted to go out and buy one for the funeral but common sense prevailed, I resisted and will instead donate to Tŷ Hafan hospice.0
