Heard about a Book...

I heard a very interesting author on The Diane Rehm Show, Gail Caldwell, who wrote Let's Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship. Caldwell tells how the extraordinary bond she shared with her best friend has endured, even after death.

About the book:

In Let’s Take the Long Walk Home, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Gail Caldwell has written a powerful and moving memoir about her coming-of-age in mid-life, and her extraordinary friendship with the author of Drinking: A Love Story, Caroline Knapp—fellow writers, AA members, dog lovers, and observers of life.
