Big Friendship by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman

Synopsis

From the hosts of hit podcast Call Your Girlfriend comes the bible on how to keep each other close.
 
Close friendships are the key to happiness – but we don’t talk enough about what it takes to nurture them for the long haul.
 
Telling the story of their own ten-year, complex, loving friendship, Aminatou and Ann share hard-won wisdom with honesty, hilarity and compassion. 
 
They’ve weathered life-threatening health scares, long-distance living, and one unfortunate Thanksgiving dinner eaten in a parking lot. And they know: the most important part of a Big Friendship is investing in each other again and again.
 
This is a testament to the power of society’s most under appreciated relationship and a compelling story of how it can survive, thrive and become a life-affirming bond.

Why This Book?

Friendships, like all relationships, take work. Some we invest in and we see the value in navigating through the good times and the bad times, we naturally accept the rough and the smooth, and these relationships last the course, whilst other friendships we lose along the way. 
 
In their book Big Friendship, Aminatou and Ann look at the complexities of friendship and what it takes from that first initial meeting, to make that relationship last. 
 
If like me, you want to understand why some of your friendships have worked for many years and some haven’t, Big Friendship is a must-read.
