for The Friend

When a writer loses her lifelong best friend and mentor to suicide, she finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind, a huge Great Dane traumatized by the inexplicable disappearance of its master. This wonderful, spare novel, written as a letter to the late friend, is a penetrating and  profoundly moving meditation on loss, memory, where we find comfort and what it means to be a writer in this world today.

“A beautiful book … crammed with a world of insight into death, grief, art, and love.” Wall Street Journal
