Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Relationships between women are often cast in binary terms, either as backstabbing competition behind the scenes or soft-filter best-friend-forever moments. Yet the simple truth about friendship is that its never simple: not for eight-year-olds acting out adulthood through rich Barbie fantasies, not for teens trying to bridge the chasm of racial and cultural divide, not for kid-free singles watching old friendships weaken with each new partner and child that happens to someone else. Yet, however problematic womens relationships with one another can be, they can also be intense, intimate affairs, more steadfast than any romantic relationship and ultimately, more fulfilling. Secrets and Confidences is the first anthology to bypass the saccharine platitudes that make up most books on womens friendships, and acknowledge the complex reality of relationships first exemplified by Mary and Rhoda, Lucy and Ethel, and now celebrated by shows like Sex and the City—relationships that exhibit jealousy and love, loyalty and despair, and more than a few pair of really good shoes.

Synopsis:

Presenting the complicated truth about women's friendships, this is the first anthology to acknowledge the complex reality of relationships that exhibit jealousy and love, loyalty and despair, and more than a few pairs of really good shoes.

Leslie Pop, January 10, 2011 (view all comments by Leslie Pop)
Karen Eng's compilation of stories on women's friendships, published in 2004, is reminiscent of the amazing personal zines of the early 1990's. The authors, Andi Zeisler, Ayun Halliday, and Ariel Schrag to name a few, present varied and realistic accounts of what it's like to to make and break best friendships. There's a story for everyone, and you'll finish the book feeling a little better about yourself, your experiences, and the perfect chaos that girl-friendship can be.
