Reconnecting in the modern world 

Despite our interconnectedness, we are stuck in the greatest loneliness epidemic of our time. Journalist Kate Leaver believes that friendship is the essential cure for this modern malaise, and that, if treated as a priority, it could improve our physical health and emotional well-being. Drawing upon the research of academics, behavioral scientists, psychotherapists, and the experiences of her friends, Leaver investigates what friendship is, why we need it, and what we can do to get the most from it. She answers questions including: How do you “break up” with a toxic friend? Can men and women really be platonic? How do you make friends as an adult? How can friendships help us live longer, better lives? The Friendship Cure is a fascinating blend of investigative journalism, science, pop culture, and memoir for anyone trying to navigate this lonely world, written with the wit, charm, and bite of a fresh voice. 
Kate Leaver is a journalist who writes about women, pop culture, and mental health. Her work has been published in the Guardian, Glamour UK, British Vogue, and Refinery 29. She lives in London.
