About the Author:

Liz Pryor grew up in a small suburb outside Chicago and has spent the last five years devoted to helping and commiserating women on her website. She runs her own chat rooms, answers questions, and rants weekly about the insanity and hilarity of everyday life. She contributes as a friendship expert to most of the women’s magazines in the country, and for the last year has written an online parenting column for the national baby products company Munchkin. She guests regularly as a go-to girlfriend, dispensing advice, on Leeza Gibbon’s nationally syndicated radio show “Hollywood Confidential.” Liz  lives in Sherman Oaks with her three teenaged children.

     Most recently, Liz applied along with more than fifteen thousand other Americans for the full-time Advice Guru position on ABC’s Good Morning America... and won!

From Publishers Weekly:

Women's friendships and connections are traditionally viewed as strong, faithful, ideally lifelong. But the reality is disturbing: initially intimate friendships can suddenly turn sour and end in dances of avoidance in which phone calls aren't returned and vague excuses are made. Magazine columnist Pryor candidly examines the strangely conflicted nature of women's friendships. "Women's love and commitment to one another is abounding," she writes, "yet when friendships end, we show little to no respect or honor for that which has enriched, supported, and even prolonged our lives." The book is written in a highly personal style and contains intimate anecdotes from her own experience. Even more touching, she genuinely cares for the women she has interviewed, who are heartbroken or confused over the loss of longstanding friendships. Pryor makes some pragmatic suggestions about how to draw back from problematic friends yet communicate caring and respect. She shows that the strongest friendships can come full circle and that while circumstances and lifestyle differences can separate women, it's not impossible for reconnections to occur. Pryor believes that emotional honesty is critical in allowing women to feel good about themselves and their friendship decisions. Good Morning America appearance. (Apr. 4)
