Literary Nonfiction. Women's Studies. An intelligent voice. An illuminating book. Mary Lou Sanelli is unsparing as she explores the subject of friendship in women's lives. This is a book of self-discovery...dauntless, smart, funny, beautifully written. She examines, deeply and sincerely, what friendship means, and what it costs. She pulls no punches. Through contemplation and through personal anecdotes, both her own and others, Sanelli crawls through this morass of conflicts and emerges with a strong sense of self and a much clearer idea of closeness.

Sanelli works as a writer, public speaker, columnist, and radio commentator. She is the author of six poetry collections and one collection of essays. Her poetry has been published widely and was recently included in two anthologies of Western Women Writers published by Houghton Mifflin. Her collection Close At Hand was chosen as one of nine Northwest titles in 2005 to be put into Braille by The Seattle Public Talking Book Library. Her staged reading from her collection The Immigrant's Table is an acclaimed, original spoken duet that dramatically and poetically tells a story of immigration, cultural adjustment and weaving Old and New Worlds together into a rich fabric of memoir.Review:
Mary Lou Sanelli says things that matter to me...and when she says them, they sing. --Judith Ryan Hendricks, author of Bread Alone
I just wanted to tell you that I just finished your book and loved it. Thank you for your honesty and for dispelling the movie myth of friendship. I have felt like a failure for so long for not being able to understand what went wrong in relationships that I invested so much in and cared for with all my heart. Your book showed me that I am not alone. --Hayley Clayton, letter to author
Sanelli is jaw-droppingly honest. --Margaret Bikman, The Beliingham Herald
