Overview

Friendkeeping: A Field Guide to the People You Love, Hate, and Can't Live Without by Julie Klam

Look out for Julie's new book, The Stars in Our Eyes, publishing in July 2017.

From New York Times bestselling memoirist Julie Klam, a funny and affecting look at friendship in an age of isolation.

Facebook says you have hundreds of friends. So why can you name only two? Friendship today is more confusing than ever, and yet having someone to lean on and confide in is increasingly more important. Enter bestselling author Julie Klam, an expert on friendship—online and off—if there ever was one.

With humor and warmth, Klam shares stories that get to the heart of modern friendships, drawing in particular on her relationships with her four closest friends. From the relative value of secrets to the comfort of a confidant, from exciting social media friends to the ones who come to your party or meet you for lunch or go with you to a horrible doctor’s appointment, Klam explores every facet of modern friendship and peppers her stories with suggestions on how to make the most of it, and when to walk away. The result is a guide to making and keeping friendships that can stand the test of time.

Delivered in Klam’s inimitable, disarmingly accessible, and uproariously funny voice, Friendkeeping is a tribute to the powerful bonds we have with our friends and the singular joy these relationships create in our lives.

Hi

As universal a topic as friendship is, this is the first book I've come across to examine it in this way. It was an interesting read that contained some good storytelling. Just not sure if there was a lesson in all of it. But then again, no lesson was promised. I would have given the book 4 stars, but I felt that at times the author was repetitive. In a book that isn't very long, there's no reason to give retell the history behind a character repeat anecdotes.
