Iconoclast Books and the Community Library present a winter literary evening. Book signing to follow.
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. Childhood friendships, friendships with older women, friendships that play out with the passion and intensity of love affairs, the friendships between new mothers-- each has its own subtleties, its own lessons that Sonnenberg examines and understands with astounding acuity. 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.
