9781905491117: Can We Still Be Friends

Can We Still Be Friends is the debut novel by the editor of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman. Summer, 1983. Best friends, Sal, Annie and Kendra are fresh-faced and fresh out of university. Three very different girls about to walk three very different but equally tangled paths . . . Sal's the aspiring journalist whose personal demons threaten to destroy everything she achieves. Annie's the domestic beauty, convinced that marriage will give her everything she wants. And Kendra, the daughter of chic, liberal parents, is searching for her an identity all of her own. As they plunge headlong into the years of pixie boots and shoulder pads, Duran Duran and Margaret Thatcher, they find that for all their plans and hopes and dreams, nothing in life is certain - and that includes friendship. 'Exquisite time travel . . . Every detail - from fashion, design and music to social tribes and verbal tics - is spot on' Guardian 'Warm and entertaining . . . captures the excitement of being young and glamorous at a time when the sky really did seem to be the limit' The Times 'Wonderfully evokes that ping-pong between trivial and tremendous so characteristic of the Eighties . . . great on atmosphere . . . An engaging debut, alive with human sympathy' Wendy Holden, Daily Mail Alexandra Shulman has edited British Vogue since 1992. She is a contributor to The Times, Daily Mail, Guardian and Daily Telegraph and lives in London. This is her first novel.

Review:

Exquisite time travel ... Every detail - from fashion, design and music to social tribes and verbal tics - is spot on Guardian Wonderfully evokes that ping-pong between trivial and tremendous so characteristic of the Eighties ... great on atmosphere ... An engaging debut, alive with human sympathy -- Wendy Holden Daily Mail Engrossing ... brilliantly captures the complexities of female friendship Good Housekeeping A poignant look at the juggling act women must maintain if they're to carve out a career, and how friendships define life's tribulations Glamour Warm and entertaining ... captures the excitement of being young and glamorous at a time when the sky really did seem to be the limit -- Kate Saunders The Times 'Sapphic sex, shoulder pads and Spandau Ballet ... Too seductive a storyline to wait for the inevitable film Tatler Shulman's well-executed debut is committed to portraying life in all its contradictory, chaotic, celebratory form. A novel both full of heart and comfortable in its own skin Observer An impressive debut ... the best-quality chick-lit available and a thoroughly enjoyable summer read Daily Express A fun summer read ... a page-turner, making me nostalgic for a time when youthful female friendships had to be worked at, face to face over a bottle of wine and some nasty pink taramasalata, rather than simply maintained with a few mouse clicks and a "share" button FT An enjoyable romp back to a more flamboyant time Sunday Express Shulman has a terrific eye for the small yet telling detail Observer Magazine
