Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
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).
