Plus, a bookish tale from my own life
FYI for anyone looking - two of these changed titles it looks like, or maybe have different titles in the US - the Kaplan is titled "NSFW" and the Bourne is "When We Were Friends."
That quote about 40 years of friendship and the unknowability of other people struck me to the core. I will read this book. I am fascinated by friendship and the stories that come out of the relationships that shape our lives and yet leave us strangers right up until the end.
