"I can still see her standing on the shore, a towel around her neck and a post-workout cigarette in hand—half Gidget and half Splendid Splinter, her rower's arms in defiant contrast to the awful pink bathing suit she'd found somewhere. It was the summer of 1997, and Caroline and I had decided to swap sports." With these first chapter words, Gail Caldwell's best friend Caroline Knapp enters our lives, easing her way into an intimacy that one doesn't expect from strangers. The vivid word portrait that Caldwell lovingly constructs of her now deceased bosom buddy is more than a personal tribute; it is a celebration of friendship itself and a study in surviving loss. A bittersweet memoir by a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. A Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
