Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
THE BEST FRIEND WHO BROKE UP WITH YOU. The older girl at school you worshipped. The friend who betrayed you. The friend you betrayed. Companions in travel, in discovery, in motherhood, in grief; the mentor, the model, the rescuer, the guide, the little sister. These have been the friends in Susanna Sonnenberg’s life, women tender, dominant, and crucial.

Searing and superbly written, Sonnenberg’s She Matters: A Life in Friendships illuminates the friendships that have influenced, nourished, inspired, and haunted her—and sometimes torn her apart. Each has its own lessons that Sonnenberg seeks to understand. Her method is investigative and ruminative; her result, fearlessly observed portraits of friendships that will inspire all readers to consider the complexities of their own relationships. This electric book is testimony to the emotional bonds between women, whether shattered, shaky, or unbreakable.

Book Description: Scribner. 1 Paperback(s), 2013. soft. Book Condition: New. (A New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice) The best friend who broke up with you, the older girl at school you worshipped, the friend who betrayed you—and the friend you betrayed—are among the crucial relationships between girls and women that Susanna Sonnenberg explores here. Also the author of the memoir Her Last Death, Sonnenberg presents a score of linked essays, searing and lyrically written, that illuminate the friendships that have influenced, nourished, inspired, and haunted her, and sometimes have even torn her apart. We meet women who have been her companions in travel, in discovery, in motherhood, and in grief, and those who have served such archetypes as the mentor, the model, the rescuer, the guide, and the little sister."I read She Matters with such a keen sense of recognition, seeing myself (and my own mistakes and victories) repeated in so many forms through the female friendships of her own that Sonnenberg examines so eloquently. Like all of us, I want to do better. I think (hope) this book can help."—Elizabeth Gilbert"Sonnenberg is a gifted literary stylist with a stunning ability to write sentences that read like beautiful traps. She Matters artfully reveals the depth and gravity of love between women as they make sense of the changing and often treacherous emotional and logistical terrain of their forward-moving lives."—Boston Globe 285.

Book Description: Scribner Book Company, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 211 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. From the bestselling immensely gifted (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times ) author of Her Last Death comes a fearless, compulsively readable, intensely provocative book about female friendships. She Matters is a dazzling, poetic love letter to what women share, an unforgettable memoir you ll immediately want to pass along to friends (Kate Walbert, author of A Short History of Women ). Searing and superbly written, Susanna Sonnenberg s She Matters: A Life in Friendships illuminates the friendships that have influenced, nourished, inspired, and haunted her--and sometimes torn her apart. Each has its own lessons that Sonnenberg seeks to understand. Her method is investigative and ruminative; her result, fearlessly observed portraits of friendships that will inspire all readers to consider the complexities of their own relationships. This electric book is testimony to the emotional significance of the intense bonds between women, whether shattered, shaky, or unbreakable. She Matters is so finely nuanced, so joyously serious, so wildly playful--to live with it is a deep pleasure. Sonnenberg is also so willing to push below the surface of what we call friendship (a surface, alas, most of us are willing to exist upon) (Nick Flynn, author of The Reenactments ).
