Synopsis

'Deeply compelling' ROXANE GAY 'An inspiration' ARIEL LEVY 'Wonderful' HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON



From the hosts of hit podcast Call Your Girlfriend comes the bible on how to keep each other close.



A New York Times bestseller



Close friendships are the key to happiness - but we don't talk enough about what it takes to nurture them for the long haul.



Telling the story of their own ten-year, complex, loving friendship, Aminatou and Ann share hard-won wisdom with honesty, hilarity and compassion. They've weathered life-threatening health scares, long-distance living, and one unfortunate Thanksgiving dinner eaten in a parking lot. And they know: the most important part of a Big Friendship is investing in each other again and again.



This is a testament to the power of society's most underappreciated relationship and a compelling story of how it can survive, thrive and become a life-affirming bond.
