Let's Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship by Gail Caldwell

“It’s an old, old story: I had a friend and we shared everything, and then she died and so we shared that, too.” They met over their dogs. Both writers, Gail Caldwell and Caroline Knapp, became best friends, talking about everything. They walked the woods of New England and rowed on the Charles River, and the miles they logged on land and water became a measure of the interior ground they covered. The friendship helped them define the ordinary moments of life as the ones worth cherishing. Then, several years into this remarkable connection, Knapp was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.
