Review

A true delight: I genuinely fear I won't read a better novel this year (Financial Times)

A beautiful book . . . crammed with a world of insight into death, grief, art, and love (Wall Street Journal)

Very very clever. Mature. Entertaining. Eminently readable and re-readable. In short, absolutely delightful. (Irish Times)

Delicious ... An intensely pleasurable read because it is so accessible, capacious and clever (Sunday Times)

A pitch-perfect novel ... Wry and moving, The Friend is a love story, a mania story and a recovery story (Vanity Fair)

A sneaky gut punch of a novel . . . a consummate example of the human-animal tale (Harper's Magazine)

The book is an intimate, beautiful thing, deceptively slight at around 200 pages, but humming with insight . . . [an] artfully discursive meditation on friendship, love, death, solitude, canine companionship and the life of an aging writer in New York .. peppered with wry observations (The Economist)

A poignant reflection on loss and companionship (Marie Claire)

Often as funny as it is thoughtful, The Friend is an elegant meditation on grief, friendship, healing, and the bonds between humans and dogs (Buzzfeed)

An elegant and darkly humorous meditation on grief and companionship, it's a great read - whether or not you're obsessed with canines (Shondaland.com)

Book Description

WINNER OF THE 2018 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD and a NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER: a moving story of love, friendship, grief, healing, and the magical bond between a woman and her dog.
