Overview

The true stories that make up this book were milestones in the author's journey from isolation to community -- from haunting estrangement to a deeper, more vital connection with others.

In a sense, Friends and Strangers is about loneliness -- how we become cut off from other people and estranged from ourselves.

More important, it is about the precious gift of other people, friends and strangers alike, and the contributions they make in our lives.
