Friendship might be described as the most common common denominator. This intensely sought-after component of our lives intrigues us, plays havoc with our happiness or arrives suddenly like a gift from heaven. Author Julie Klam (You Had Me at Woof; Please Excuse My Daughter) has already probed the strong, abiding relationships with humans and dogs; now she has taken the next great leap to explore the connections that we make (or try to make) with others of our lonely species. In the digital age, friend-keeping is, as she notes, a constantly evolving task, running from remote online friendships to frenzied workday texting. Friendkeeping uses interviews and personal stories (some of them hilarious) to enlighten us about this ever-present subject.
