The Other Great Love - Only Better

Girlfriends are companions, soul mates, and a compass when making important decisions. They know us better than we know ourselves and endure us with all our flaws and quirks. Corinne Luca talks about the most influential friendships in her life, from kindergarten until today, with all the small and big moments of happiness and crisis that are part of life—sometimes sad and comforting, but first and foremost honest, entertaining, and deeply moving.

A lot has been written on the topic of friendship. Great novels talk about it, philosophers have been racking their brains over it across the ages. Corinne Luca traces it in the small and personal moments, with amusing and emotional stories about herself and her girlfriends, about sleepovers and nights spent on parking lots in front of clubs, shared secrets and apartments, about calamities mastered together, and new worlds with partners and kids. She writes about great intimacy and warmth, self-abandonment and disappointments, about bitter rivalries and losses, excitement and happiness. By looking at the everyday moments in our relationships, she decodes the nature of friendship in all its facets.
