Praise

Praise for Let’s Take the Long Way Home

“A near-perfect memoir: beautiful, humble, intimate and filled with piercing insights.”Time (Top 10 Nonfiction Books of 2010)

“A lovely gift to readers . . . You can shelve Let’s Take the Long Way Home, Gail Caldwell’s beautifully written book. . . next to The Year of Magical Thinking [by] Joan Didion.”The Washington Post (Best Nonfiction of 2010)

“Stunning . . . gorgeous . . . intense and moving . . . a book of such crystalline truth that it makes the heart ache.”The Boston Globe 

“Female friendship is the beating heart of this book . . . Pure tenderness . . . runs through its pages.”The New York Times Book Review

“So lovely and, somehow, so precise in its wisdom. . . I feel lucky to have met this graceful, piercing book.”—Kelly Corrigan, author of The Middle Place

“There are as many shadings to our griefs as there are lost loves to grieve over. Friendship, as Gail Caldwell’s memoir gracefully testifies, asks a special, liberating eloquence.”—Richard Ford, author of Independence Day
