Susanna Sonnenberg

From the bestselling "immensely gifted" (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times) author of Her Last Death comes a stunningly candid, compulsively readable, intensely provocative book about female friendships. A ruthless and illuminating exploration of the friendships that dominated, influenced, nourished, inspired, haunted-and sometimes tore her apart-Susanna Sonnenberg has written a book as searing and superb as her first book about her mother, Her Last Death.

Sonnenberg's style is investigative and ruminative; the result is candid and fearlessly observed portraits of the nuances and complexities of friendships that become universally recognizable. For women of all ages, She Matters is testimony to the emotional significance of the sometimes intense and powerful bonds of female friendships-and their essential role they play in our journey to adulthood, and our deepening humanity.
