Nonfiction November: Seeking Books about Friendships
However, as is bound to happen, most books in this genre do not bring anything new to the table. Marlena by Julie Buntin. This devastating and gorgeously written novel is about the ill-fated friendship of Cat and Marlena. Impressionable and lonely, she makes friends with the older and troubled Marlena. The Burning Girl by Claire Messud.
I chose titles from a variety of genres, but the common theme is they show the power of strong female friendships. What are your favorite books celebrating strong female friendships? I was getting worried Anne was not there until I reached the end! This is such a lovely list. The invisibles caught my eye, I just got it!! Such a great book on how friendships can and should grow and change as we do.

Friendships between women especially among groups of women, where tendrils of energy and intuition entwine and collide like the offshoots of willful plants seem to come with so many attendant complications. Ideally, everyone is growing toward and reaching for the same sun. What happens when petty resentments become destructive lesions, or when envy chokes off reason? The promise women have made to one another, once unspoken but now a kind of noisy anthem, is that all women must support one another, all the time. Because women are people, and conflict between people is inevitable. Familiarity may nourish intimacy, but it can also breed that other thing, as damaging to a friendship as drought is to greenery. Luckily, we have fiction to help us sort through these issues vicariously.
