Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Levine's first book is a formidable resource for negotiating the ending of women's friendships. The author, a journalist, psychologist and professor at NYU Medical School, affirms that the grief of ending a close friendship can be as potent as that of a dying romantic relationship. But the former rarely garners the same social support as a divorce or romantic breakup. Levine cites studies indicating that women's friendships are more intense than men's, nurtured through shared intimacy and reciprocity. But friendships are not static, she explains—over time, they can wax and wane and end. Levine's seven stages of grief are loosely reminiscent of the Kübler-Ross grief model, but include new elements: “Self Blame,” “Embarrassment and Shame” and “Relief. “Full of hints for being a consistently thoughtful friend, for resuscitating your closest friendship or knowing when to end it, this book is part etiquette guide, part grief manual. Whether your friendship sputtered because of physical distance or your best friend slept with your boyfriend, Levine deftly assures us that although the pain can be strong, the sorrow will pass. (Sept.)
Library Journal
Gender studies expert Barash (Tripping the Prom Queen) explores ten types of female friendships and shows how women get in and out of unhealthy relationships. Most readers will recognize the Leader of the Pack, the Misery Lover, and the Doormat and will be able to see the plusses and minuses of staying in the relationship.
