Summary, etc.:
"Two of the nation's leading feminists and hosts of the hit podcast "Call Your Girlfriend" make the bold and compelling argument that a close friendship is the most influential and important relationship a human life can contain-helping you improve as a person and in your relationships with others"-- Provided by publisher.
A close friendship is one of the most influential and important relationships a human life can contain, but most people don't talk about what it really takes to stay close for the long haul. Sow and Friedman chronicle their first decade in one another's lives. Through frank and intimate conversations, they discuss the joys and pitfalls they've faced. They invite you to think about how your own bonds are formed, challenged, preserved-- and valued. -- adapted from back cover and Amazon info.
