NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
They met over their dogs. Gail Caldwell and Caroline Knapp (author
of Drinking: A Love Story) became best friends,
talking about everything from their love of books and their shared
history of a struggle with alcohol to their relationships with men.
Walking the woods of New England and rowing on the Charles River,
these two private, self-reliant women created an attachment more
profound than either of them could ever have foreseen. Then,
several years into this remarkable connection, Knapp was diagnosed
with cancer. With her signature exquisite prose, Caldwell mines the
deepest levels of devotion, and courage in this gorgeous memoir
about treasuring a best friend, and coming of age in midlife.
Let's Take the Long Way Home is a celebration of the
profound transformations that come from intimate connection-and it
affirms, once again, why Gail Caldwell is recognized as one of our
bravest and most honest literary voices.
